Explosion occurs in silo at CraftMaster

From the Towanda Daily Review:

WYSOX - About 75 firefighters from four departments responded Wednesday night to the CraftMaster plant following an explosion at around 6:30 p.m. in a storage silo at the facility.

The explosion occurred inside a silo used to store wood fiber, according to Wysox Fire Chief Chad Benjamin. CraftMaster plant manager Matt Ameigh said the dust inside the silo reached ignition point, causing the explosion.

It appears from the story that thankfully no one was injured in the explosion.
