McKinney Fire Department spokesman Stacie Durham told the newspaper that people were touring the microbrewery about noon when the kettle exploded and ripped through a wall. One victim was taken to Medical Center of McKinney and another was flown to Medical Center of Plano. Their conditions were unknown at present.
The story says that one person touring the brewery said he saw paramedics remove two Franconia employees with cuts. Apparently, 100 or so other people were touring the brewery but were not hurt.
Franconia is located at 495 McKinney Parkway.
