SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say two workers suffered minor injuries in a small explosion at a plant in coastal Georgia. Firefighters in Savannah responded Tuesday morning to the blast and found any flames had already been extinguished by the facility's fire suppression system. The Savannah Fire Department said in a news release that the explosion appears to have been caused by dust combusting in a room used to mix flour. Firefighters found damage to a wall and two workers with minor injuries. The fire department did not name the business. But the explosion occurred in a block that includes a commercial bakery.
