Fire at Dahlgren this morning
Two people were burned this morning when a boiler exploded in the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense headquarters at the Naval Support Facility in Dahlgren.
One person was airlifted to a hospital, the other taken by ambulance. Spokesman Gary Wagner wouldn’t release their names, extent of their injuries or to which hospitals they went. The Aegis headquarters and the building next to it were evacuated, then the 400 or so workers were allowed to go back to their offices.
If you work at the base and heard anything about the fire, let me know. Give me a call at 540/374-5425 or an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
