The explosion at the power plant happens at about 40 seconds into the video. (The audio and video are out of sync.)

The department says the firefighters were in contact with plant employees, who gave them the heads up that a blast was likely.

“The piece of equipment which was on fire was designed with ‘blow out’ panels which allow a smaller explosion but reduce the chances of a catastrophic explosion,” says the Green Bay Metro Fire Department.

The department says the system worked as it was designed, and “EVERYONE WENT HOME SAFE!”
