Explosion shakes Hunts Point plant

A pre-dusk explosion at the New York Organic Fertilizer Company badly damaged a storage silo at the plant on Oak Point Avenue and sent sludge and fertilizer pellets flying into its parking lot.

No one was injured, but the state Department of Environmental Conservation ordered the plant to stop using six of its seven silos until the agency gains a firmer understanding of what caused the explosion and how to prevent it from happening again.

Critics say the blast offers one more reason why the controversial plant should be shut down.
