There was an explosion at Esterline this evening. The fire can’t be put out because of its nature, and it has to be allowed to burn out on its own. CFD is stationed there to provide backup until the danger has passed. Everything else at this time is speculation. There were 2 people seriously injured. They have been flown to Children’s Hospital burn unit in Little Rock. Because of HIPPA, their names have not been made public, but if you pray for them and their families, God will know who you are talking about.
