Update: Three Dead, Multiple Injuries In Explosion
(St. Louis, MO) — At least three people are dead and two are in very critical condition after a boiler explosion in St. Louis. Fire Chief Dennis Jenkerson says a boiler in the Loy Lang Box Company in the Soulard neighborhood exploded around 8 o’clock this morning local time. It sent a boiler as big as a van hurtling through the sky and crushing a hole in the roof of a neighboring building. One person died at the box company and two died in an office area in the Faultless Linen Company where the boiler landed. There are several people seriously injured and extensive damage to cars and other buildings.
