One person was hurt and an area business was evacuated this morning after an explosion.

The blast rocked Ungerer & Company on N. Commerce Way in Bethlehem, Pa. just before 10 a.m.

One person was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Northampton County dispatchers.

A spokeswoman for the company says the explosion was contained to a back area and that the building was briefly evacuated.

It wasn't clear exactly what caused the blast, which appeared to possibly be a chemical explosion, according to dispatchers.

SkyForce10 hovered overhead as firefighters pulled hoses into a back service dock at the warehouse.

Ungerer produces flavors and fragrances, according to the company’s website.
