Explosion at Price Laboratories Central City Newspaper

Central City was on high alert today after an explosion at Price Laboratories.

Price Laboratories, under the direction of mega corp. Price Industries, has become known for conducting odd experimentations. Although these are only unsubstantiated rumors, one can’t help but think there are some morally questionable actions taking place within the walls of the laboratory. Price Industries did not respond to a request for comment.

At this point there has been no official word on the cause of the explosion. CCPD officials have commented that the investigation into the explosion is on-going.

Over one thousand employees and visitors were evacuated before the explosion occurred in the laboratories’ main facility. Among those still trapped inside, at the time of the explosion, were a group of students from Central City High on a class field trip. The students were in the reactor core when the evacuation alarms sounded. As a precaution the reactor core was sealed off, preventing a greater catastrophe but also trapping the students inside. After the explosion, the students were later rescued by emergency crews and taken to Central City General. The student’s injuries appear to be non-life threatening and we wish them a speedy recovery.
