A hazardous materials incident at a business in Middle River has left a man injured.

Just before 11 a.m. this morning, Baltimore County Fire personnel responded to Middle River Aircraft Systems in the 100 block of Chesapeake Park Plaza 21220 for a report of an explosion.

Firefighters found that two employees had been transferring hydrochloric acid from one container to another. That process had been completed and they were in the process of flushing out the transfer hose when it burst.

One employee, that had on a protective suit but no respiratory gear, was splashed with the acid and inhaled some fumes. The other employee was splashed with the acid but his protective suit kept him from being exposed.

The exposed employee was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center for treatment.

There were two other people (one contractor, one employee) that were evaluated but declined transportation to a medical facility.

Approximately 24 pieces of Baltimore County Fire Department Equipment was assigned to this incident.
