===================
POCA, W.Va. (AP) - Emergency officials say crews are responding to reports of explosions and a fire at an industrial site in Putnam County.

Nitro firefighter Jeff Dorsey says crews were dispatched Monday afternoon to Airgas in Poca. The company is a distributor of specialty gases used for industrial and other purposes.

Dorsey did not know if any injuries were reported as a result of the explosion and fire.

A telephone call to the company resulted in a busy signal. A woman who answered the phone at the company's regional headquarters said officials were in a meeting and could not immediately comment.
