Explosion at Widener’s
Firefighters are on the scene of an apparent ammunition storage facility explosion near Indian Ridge Road and Locust Lane.
Johnson City, Jonesborough and volunteer firefighters were called to at Widener’s Reloading & Shooting Supply Inc. in the area of West Market Street and Indian Ridge Road just after 10 a.m.
Traffic is reportedly being diverted from the area because ammunition is cooking off and shooting across West Market Street.
