    Anyone know who was the factory in TN that went up in smoke and fire yesterday? Was it anyone important or just a local pro reloader?

    Another one? Wideners had a fire, about a year ago. They're in Tennessee, ain't they?

    1 Killed In Blast At Tennessee Ammunition Plant
    by The Associated Press
    January 5, 2011
    A series of explosions ripped through an ammunition plant in Oakland, Tenn., on Wednesday, killing one worker and injuring a firefighter while shells fired off for about an hour afterward.
    Ed Gaugh, emergency management director for Fayette County, said a 34-year-old male employee died in the blast and subsequent fire at the Kinematics Research plant, which makes shells for pistols and rifles. The worker's name was not immediately released.
    Oakland Police Chief Rick Jewell said at one point a large front door of the building blew off and a white fireball came out.
