1 Dead in Indiana Fertilizer Plant Explosion

The blast follows one less than two weeks ago at a chemical plant in Louisiana that makes fertilizer.

UNION MILLS, Ind. (AP) -- Authorities say an explosion at a grain bin in northwest Indiana left one person dead.

The LaPorte County Sheriff's Department says the explosion happened at the Union Mills Co-op. The co-op stores grain as well as fertilizer. But the department says the explosion happened in a grain silo.

The department says in a news release that no hazardous chemicals were involved.

No one else was injured and everyone else at the plant has been accounted for. The co-op is about 50 miles southeast of Chicago.
