One injury reported in explosion at plant in Harvey

HARVEY (AP) — The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office says one person has been injured in an explosion at an industrial site

along the Mississippi River.

Sheriff's spokesman John Fortunato says one person suffered a minor leg injury in the explosion Tuesday at the Kinder Morgan

bulk storage facility in an industrial area of Harvey, a New Orleans suburb on the river's west bank.

Fortunato did not have more details. A company spokesman had no immediate comment.

Cristy Finnorn owns a nearby boutique. She says she heard about a half-dozen explosions, and saw fire and a man

being taken to an ambulance. She says the fire apparently was out within 30 minutes.

According to its website, Houston-based Kinder Morgan stores and transfers petrochemicals, food oils and other bulk materials

at several Louisiana facilities.
