MIDDLETOWN TOWNSHIP, New Jersey (AP) — An explosion during boat maintenance at a U.S. Navy base injured eight sailors and civilian employees Tuesday, one seriously.
The blast happened at the Earle Naval Weapons Station in New Jersey and was confined to a boathouse, Navy spokeswoman Beth Baker said. She did not have details on the work being done.
There was no immediate word on what caused the explosion. No ammunition was involved, Baker said. The station provides ammunition and explosives for Navy vessels.
One sailor was hospitalized with serious injuries.
“He was conscious and speaking” before being taken to a hospital, Baker said.
Seven other sailors and civilian employees sustained minor injuries, mostly smoke inhalation. The Navy was withholding their names until relatives could be notified.
