Official: One machine to blame for NH explosions

COLEBROOK, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire's Fire Marshal says an investigation into a series of explosions at a gun and ammunition manufacturing plant in Colebrook that killed two people has led to one machine in the building.

Bill Degnan said Saturday that the investigation into the explosions a day earlier at the MDM Muzzleloader building has led to one machine in the manufacturing section of the facility.

He says no cause has been determined. Degnan said autopsies for the two men took place Saturday, but their names have not been released.

About 40 nearby homes were evacuated. All residents were allowed to return Friday night.

Colebrook is about 140 miles north of the capital city of Concord and 10 miles from the Canadian border.
