Enterprise UNB Building No. 1 will remain closed for the remainder of the day following this morning’s chemical explosion that sent two research centre staff members to hospital with minor injuries.
A small glass vessel exploded in a lab at the Limerick Pulp and Paper Research Centre on the second floor of the building just after 9:30 a.m. Monday.
The building was evacuated and the Fredericton Fire Department has confirmed that there is no further danger. They are in the process of cleaning the area.
