On Friday a massive explosion tore a Kosovo plant apart.  At this time, three people have been confirmed dead and more than a dozen injured.

The final death toll has not been announced at this time.

Officials believe that the coal-fired power plant explosion was caused by a mechanic's error while replacing a hydrogen canister used for cooling generators.  The sound of the explosion could be heard as far as Pristina and a black plume of smoke was seen hovering above the plant.

One body was found at the explosion site (my assumption would be that this was the mechanic's body); there is an ongoing search for more bodies.

As news comes in, we will continue to update.
