The explosion occurred at I Schumann & Co., a metal manufacturing facility in Bedford, Ohio. Witnesses reported hearing multiple loud booms and feeling the ground shake from the force of the blast. Firefighters and other emergency personnel responded to the scene shortly after the explosion was reported.
The cause of the explosion is still under investigation, but initial reports indicate that it may have been caused by a gas leak or some other type of malfunction within the factory.
