An explosion and ensuing  fire yesterday afternoon has heavily damaged Nosler Inc's Bend, Oregon bullet  manufacturing plant. Several streets and blocks of surrounding property was  evacuated, but reports from the scene indicate all 100 workers in the facility  at the time are safe and accounted for.

Reporters on the scene tell The  Outdoor Wire initial reports were for an "orange smoke", but shortly after 2:15  p.m. local time, a massive blast rocked the facilities. According to a Nosler  spokesman, there was testing going on in an underground ballistics tunnel when  there was a "flash" followed moments later by the massive  explosion.

Approximately 100 people work at Nosler, the company founded  in the 1940s by John Nosler. Only one worker was reportedly treated for smoke  inhalation, but video from the scene showed a portion of the facility destroyed  by what appears to have been a blast that blew exterior walls onto vehicles  parked outside.
