Three civilian workers and three firefighters were injured in a massive explosion and fire Thursday at a construction company in Waukesha County. The explosion and fire started shortly before 8 a.m. at Summerset Marine Construction on Chapman Lane in Eagle. No deaths were reported. Two workers were taken to the hospital, one with serious injuries. Summerset Marine Construction owner Larry Chapman said the man had a broken leg and was undergoing surgery. He was expected to be OK. Two other workers were treated on the scene. Chapman said they sustained concussions and were dragged out of the building by another employee. "Very unfortunate situation, but we'll get to the bottom of what happened. But for now, I thank God that everybody's alive," said Chapman.
