WONOWON, B.C. — Two workers were injured after an explosion occurred at a Progress Energy site north of Fort St. John on Wednesday.

WorkSafeBC spokesperson Trish Chernecki says that WorkSafe BC was informed after the explosion occurred at approximately 2:10 p.m. on June 7th at a Progress Energy site off the Gundy Road near Mile 120 of the Alaska Highway. Chernecki says that two workers were taken to hospital after an explosion at the site.
