An explosion rocked New Jersey when a fire erupted at a U.S Navy ammunitions depot in New Jersey on Tuesday. Rescue teams were rushed to the scene at around 9am and the injured were taken away in ambulances. One of the 8 injured is reported to be in a serious condition.

The base has over 1,500 workers employed but it is unclear if the 8 hurt are of that workforce or are civilians. An investigation into the cause of the explosion is now underway.
