From staff reports
CELINA - Authorities believe welding inside a grain mill likely caused an explosion Thursday morning that injured two men and caused moderate damage at Mercer Landmark.
The victims - contractors from Indiana who were hired by the local company - reportedly suffered burns to their face, arms and legs. They initially were taken to Mercer County Community Hospital, Coldwater, and later to another facility in Indiana, but local officials could not confirm the location. [More]
