Jacksonville Plant Explosion

The T2 Laboratories plant in Jacksonville, Florida exploded at 1:30 p.m. on December 19, 2007.   The Jacksonville plant explosion, which resulted in a massive fire, killed four people and injured 14 others.    Witnesses to the Jacksonville plant explosion reported seeing a bright flash followed by a tremendous explosion.    Flames and a plume of smoke formed by the T2 Laboratories explosion shot at least 20 feet into the air, and could be seen for miles around. The explosion was massive enough to blow open doors at a hotel several miles away, and shattered the windows of buildings nearby.  Fears that the T2 Laboratories explosion could have sent a toxic cloud of chemicals into the air resulted in the evacuation of a half-mile area around the plant.

Jacksonville Plant Explosion Deaths and Injuries

Hospitals in Jacksonville were put on mass-casualty alert and local television reporters said they saw several rescue units leaving the scene with lights and sirens.  Four people where confirmed dead as a result of the Jacksonville plant explosion, and 14 others were injured.  Area hospitals reported one patient in critical condition, three fair and five good. Conditions for the rest of the injured were unknown.

Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton told the Associated Press that it was miraculous that the casualties from the T2 Laboratories explosion were not greater, considering the damage done to the T2 Laboratories plant.  "Nothing there resembles a building," Mayor Peyton said. "It's amazing when you see the scene that there wasn't more loss of life."

T2 Laboratories Plant Explosion Sparks Toxic Chemical Fears
