1 Hurt in Explosion at Hot Tub Business

Incident credited to mixing of chemicals

One man was injured in an explosion Thursday at a hot tub manufacturer in Anaheim.

Twenty-six employees were inside L.A. Spas at 7:37 a.m. when the mixing of chemicals triggered a small explosion, said Anaheim Fire spokeswoman Maria Sabol.

One man's ear was burned. Firefighters also checked him for smoke inhalation, said Sabol.

More than 60 firefighters responded to the 30,000-square-foot facility located at 1311 N. Blue Gum St.

The fire caused damage to the roof. Some of the equipment and a metal roll-up door suffered water damage.
