APPLETON Two people are injured after a boiler explosion at Appleton Medical Center.

ThedaCare spokeswoman Mia Beltran says one person was treated at the hospital and another was flown to Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah.

Beltran says the explosion happened before 3 p.m. Friday.

Appleton police Lt. Pat Matuszewski says a plate blew off the boiler while two employees were working on it. He says the employee airlifted to Neenah suffered head and facial injuries. He didn't have details about the other worker.

Matuszewski says the explosion did little damage and the hospital's operations are unaffected.
