CANTONMENT, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say no one was injured when a paper mill exploded in Florida's Panhandle.
In a statement, Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Eddie Elmore said some roads around the International Paper Company Plant in Cantonment remained closed Monday.
Elmore said the roads are coated with a sticky, black substance that causes skin, eye and respiratory irritations. It's unclear how long the cleanup will take.
The Pensacola News Journal (http://on.pnj.com/2jeEtV4 ) reported that residents nearly 20 miles away heard the explosion Sunday evening.
Escambia County officials said all employees at the plant were accounted for.
