WILLIAMSPORT, Md. (AP) — Washington County's emergency services director says a man has been airlifted to a Baltimore hospital after an explosion and fire at a paint manufacturing plant in Williamsport.

Kevin Lewis said the blast shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday was contained to one room at the Rust-Oleum plant where the victim worked.

Lewis says no one else was hurt and there was no apparent structural damage to the building in an industrial park.

The Washington County Economic Development Commission says Rust-Oleum Corp., of Vernon Hills, Ill., employs about 200 people at the plant and a nearby distribution center.
