One person was killed and eight people were hurt in an explosion and second-alarm fire at an Ohio paint plant early Thursday.

About 40 employees were working just after midnight when the blast occurred in one of five buildings on Yenkin-Majestic Paint’s campus in Columbus, officials said.

While most of the employees came out of the building as firefighters arrived on the scene, authorities learned two were trapped, according to Columbus Division of Fire Battalion Chief Steve Martin.
