Emergency responders transported two people from a north Tulsa industrial plant following an explosion Tuesday morning.

The injured people, employees of Honeywell Aerospace, were taken to a hospital in unknown conditions.

A paint booth in the plant, located in the 6900 block of North Lakewood Avenue, exploded about 7 a.m., Tulsa Fire Capt. Stan May said.

The two injured worker were ambulatory when firefighters and emergency medical personnel arrived.

May said the damage was contained but extensive. Insulation and fire walls limited the damage to the particular paint booth, a powder-coating area.

The explosion left about an 1,800-square-foot hole in the roof, May said.

As of 8:30 a.m., firefighters had not yet determined the cause of the explosion.
