Emergency Teams Responding To Explosions At Franklin Power Plant
Emergency crews are responding to at least two explosions Thursday night at the Oak Grove Power Plant in Franklin, Texas.
Cause for the explosions seem to be electrical according to officials, and from reports from our news partners at KWTX. The Robertson County Sheriff's Office says they received a call from the plant a little after 6pm this evening about an explosion.
No injuries are being reported at this time and it seems that everyone working at the plant has been accounted for. Firefighters were working on putting out a turbine fire.
The explosions seem to be described as happening separately as firefighters had already arrived when they heard the second explosion. The Oak Grove Power Plant is about hour to the east of Temple, and opened operations in 2010.
