Intel Plant Explosion
CHANDLER – At least six people are injured following an explosion at the Intel plant in Chandler, Arizona.
Everyone has been evacuated and firefighters are working to confirm that everyone is out of the building.
The extent of the victims’ wounds are not clear, but at least two of them had to be transported for burn injuries.
Hazmat crews will now try to determine which chemicals are involved and what caused the explosion.
Intel established its Chandler facility in 1980 and it has grown to become Intel’s 2nd largest site with approximately 9,700 employees are employed there.
Last October, Intel announced plans to expand its factory sites in Chandler and Oregon, adding approximately 1,000 jobs and creating 6,000 to 8,000 temporary construction jobs.
