Just one day after a fatal explosion at a Louisiana chemical plant, another explosion has been reported at another chemical plant, this one in Donaldsonville, La.
Emergency officials reported another plant explosion in Ascension Parish this evening.
Five people were injured, two critically in the explosion at the CF Industries Plant in Donaldsonville according to Acadian Ambulance.
The CF Industries Plant makes phosphorous and nitrogen, according to the company’s website.

Tonight’s incident was nowhere near the scale of the West explosion, but it did claim at least one life, according to authorities.
