Brian Cain, spokesman for Extraction, said a pressurized hose broke loose, injuring three workers. One worker had his leg broken, Cain said, but all three workers were treated and released from the hospital.

Windsor police Sgt. Brian Smith said police received the call about 7 p.m. regarding a small explosion — which involved no fire — related to a liquid nitrogen line at a site near Weld County Roads 62 and 15. It was an active site, with 56 employees on scene.

"The event was immediately contained and professionally handled," Cain said, adding that working is proceeding at the site.
