One person is in the hospital after an explosion at the Caterpillar facility in Carrier Mills.
Caterpillar spokesman Rusty Dunn says it's unclear what caused the blast and fire Monday morning in an unattached paint building. That building was heavily damaged.
Dunn says an unidentified employee sustained burns and was taken to a St. Louis-area hospital. His medical status was not immediately known.
