DONALDSONVILLE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - At least one person has been killed, in another plant explosion south of Baton Rouge.

It happened Friday evening, at the C.F. Industries Plant, which produces nitrogen products.

At least eight people were hurt, and two of them were taken to the hospital.

The Ascension Parish sheriff says there was an explosion and fire involving an 18-wheeler, but no other details have been released.  Hazmat crews were dispatched to the plant.
