Six suffer burns in Mississipp­i explosion:


Several workers suffered severe burns following a Friday morning explosion at a saltwater disposal site in Madison County in central Mississipp­i. At least six people sustained burns on at least 50 percent of their bodies, said Minor Norman, the Madison County fire coordinato­r. There were four storage tank facilities to hold products from oil wells. The workers were in the process of changing out two tanks with new fiberglass tanks when the older tank exploded, Norman said. The injured worked for W.S. Red Hancock, a welding and fabricatio­n company.
