An ammunition storage facility explosion rocked a small neighborhood off Indian Ridge Road and sent a plume of smoke skyward that could be seen miles away.
It happened just after 10 a.m. at the dead end of Locust Lane, a short neighborhood road off Indian Ridge near West Market Street.
No one was injured in the blast, according to Johnson City Interim Fire Chief Mark Finucane.
The building, owned by Stan Widener, housed materials he used in his business, Widener Reloading and Shooting Supply Inc.
