A employee at the Wisconsin Public Service Weston power plant near Wausau was injured Thursday morning. WPS says one of three coal mills at the Weston Power Plant Unit 2 over pressurized. "Explosion is not the correct word," says spokeswoman Kelly Zagrzebski. "We had an overpressurization of the equipment."
Zagrzebski says one worker suffered minor injuries, and was taken to a medical facility for treatment. The extent of the employee's injury is not known. Zagrzebski says crews are looking into what happened. Zagrzebski says the incident did not interrupt service to customers. The Weston power plant is located in Rothschild, just south of Wausau.
