WIMBLEDON, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say a 53-year old man is being treated at a Minneapolis-area hospital burn unit after he was seriously injured in an anhydrous ammonia accident.

Barnes County Sheriff Randy McClaflin says a hose blew off the ammonia tank, and the liquid fumes hit the man's body at a fertilizer plant in Wimbledon on Friday morning.

McClaflin tells KOVC radio that the man was flown to a Fargo hospital before being transferred to a Twin Cities hospital for treatment.

The man's identity and condition has not been released.
