Three workers at an area steel mill were burned in an apparent accident overnight.

According to Chester County dispatchers, emergency responders were called to the ArcelorMittal Steel Plant on South 1st Avenue in Coatesville, Pa. before 10:30 p.m. Thursday.

The three workers all suffered burns. Their conditions and identities weren’t released.

Investigators say a bucket containing molten steel apparently exploded, injuring the workers. Authorities are still trying to determine exactly what happened.

The Coatesville plant produces materials used in machinery for oil, gas, rail transportation, ship building, automotive, marine, mining and other businesses, according to the company’s website.
