Two people were injured Wednesday morning in an explosion at the Timet plant in Henderson.

The plant is located on Water Street near Lake Mead Parkway. State and city officials say there was no impact to the public. But it's not the first time this has happened at that site.

A dumpster being dropped. A big truck driving by. That's how people who live and work around the Timet plant described the morning explosion.

Not long after the accident, Timet says it was back to business as usual.

Mark Cottrill was getting a cup of coffee.

"It did shake the house a little bit," Cottrill said.

Loretta Pelligla was about to open her furniture store.

"I did hear a noise, but I thought it was one of them big ol' trucks."

At 8:15, their morning routine was interrupted by a serious boom from a very large neighbor -- Timet.

"I felt the shaking," Cottrill said. ":Right when I heard it, I knew it was some type of explosion."... Read More
