(AP) Authorities say an explosion at a fertilizer plant near Waco, Texas, has injured several people.


A dispatcher with the West, Texas, Fire Department says the explosion happened Wednesday night at a fertilizer plant in the community north of Waco. She says any casualties would be taken to hospitals in Waco.


Gayle Scarbrough, a spokeswoman for the Department of Public Safety in Waco, told television station KWTX that DPS troopers have been transporting the injured to hospitals in their patrol cars. She says six helicopters were also en route.


KWTX reports that the explosion at West Fertilizer was reported at around 7:50 p.m. in a frantic call from the scene.
