Fourteen people have been brought to hospitals for treatment after an explosion at a power plant that was under construction in Connecticut.
Officials say multiple people died in the explosion Sunday at the Kleen Energy plant, though they do not know how many. Deputy Fire Marshal Al Santostefano says the number of injured is fewer than 50.
Brian Albert, spokesman for Middlesex Hospital in Middletown, says 11 people were brought in. Two were treated and released, eight are being treated for broken bones, abdominal injuries, blunt force trauma and similar injuries.
He says a seriously injured person was transferred to Hartford Hospital, and another may be sent there.
Hartford Hospital says two other people were brought there directly after the blast.
Albert says Middlesex Hospital did not expect to receive more patients.
