Explosion at Somersby factory

A man in his 40's has been transported to Gosford Hospital with burns to his face, forearms and left leg, after an explosion involving a chemical substance at a factory in Somersby this morning.

Emergency services were called to the factory at 62 Pile Road just before quarter past six.

Two fire and rescue crews and a HAZMAT Unit from Berkeley Vale remain on site trying to identify the substance involved.

Duty Commander Jeff McPherson says there is no danger to workers in surrounding areas, and no roads have been closed.
