PETERBOROUGH, N.H. - An explosion rocked a small-town ball bearings plant on Monday, shaking walls, shattering windows and sending at least 15 people to the hospital, but a company spokeswoman said none of their injuries appeared to be life-threatening.
A New Hampshire Ball Bearings Inc. machine operator, Paul Clark, said he was outside in the parking lot on Monday afternoon when he heard the blast.
"I was in my car backing out when I felt a rumble and heard a bang," he said. "I looked up, and snow on the building's roof was flying into the wind."
