A treater plant explosion occurred in the early afternoon hours of June 12 near HWY 59, one mile south of Jenne Trail.

Converse County Undersheriff Nate Hughes confirmed Thursday morning that two workers were injured and were transported to Western States Burn Center in Greeley, Colorado.

Hughes confirmed that they assisted with providing a deputy to drive one of the ambulances from Wright to Campbell County Health in Gillette.

“At this time the incident is being investigated as an industrial accident,” Hughes said.

No company or individual names have been released at this time.
