3 hurt in accident at Kansas steel fabrication supplier


HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — Three people have been hurt in an industrial accident at a steel fabrication supplier in Kansas.

The Reno County Sheriff’s Office says a pressurized water tank exploded Thursday at Wifco Steel Products northeast of Hutchinson. The Hutchinson News (http://bit.ly/2euQdAJ ) reports that the most seriously injured man was in critical condition at a Wichita hospital.

A second man was in fair condition at a Wichita hospital, while the third man was treated at a Hutchinson hospital and released.

The company didn’t immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press early Friday seeking comment.
