Uh oh...

An explosion at a scrap metal plant in Muskogee Tuesday evening has heavily damaged the facility and damaged homes and businesses nearby.

Witnesses say the explosion shortly after 8 PM, sounded like a bomb. Muskogee Police are in the process of securing the area around the Yaffe Iron and Metals Company plant

More on tonight's explosion...

why havent any big news sites picked up on this yet?!

"I was sitting on the couch and it blew me off the couch," said John Hammons, who lives near the plant.

Nearly an hour after the blast, the fire continued and heavy black smoke poured from the plant.

A scrap metal plant does not seem like an attractive terrorist target and Oklahoma does not sound like a suitable target area. I'm guessing that a scrap metal plant has facilities for melting scrap metal correct? Would I be way out in left field then to suggest that there were large quantities of combusible material in the facility for said melting operation?
