3 hurt in fire at biodiesel plant

SPARKS (AP) – Three people were injured in a fire and explosion at a biodiesel fuel plant in an industrial section of Sparks near the Truckee River.

Sparks fire officials say one man suffered burns and was hospitalized in the blast around 11:30 a.m. Friday at Advanced Refining Concepts on Coney Island Drive.

Fuel leaked from two of the 125-gallon tanks but officials said they didn’t know how much or whether it made it as far as the sewer system. The cause of the fire was under investigation.
