Abilene High Blast Hurls TwoWorkmen Two employes of the Abilene Public Schools maintenance de- partment suffered multiple burns in an explosion while they were sanding furniture at Abilene School Friday afternoon. Pedro Gonzalez, 36, of 1M1 S. 15th, and Francisco Fernandez, SO, of 118 Meander, were taken to Hendrick Memorial Hospital fol- lowing the p.m. explosion where they were given emergency treatment and admitted to the hospital. The two Cuban refugees, who relocated in Abilene last fall, were working in the downstairs part of the south wing of the school when the s and er apparently became overhead and short circuited, igniting the shavings left by the sander and causing the explosion. Gonzalez, who was not wearing a shirt at the time of the explo- sion, received second and third degree burns on the front of his body and both arms, and was list- ed in "fair" condition at the hos- pital. Fernandez, who was thought to have been holding the sander when the explosion occurred, re- ceived first and second degree burns on his left arm. His condi- tion was reported as "good." Abilene firemen were called to the scene, but reported that no fire broke out following the ex- plosion. Damage to the area was called very minor. The two men had been employes of the Abilene Public Schools since last fall. Fernandez joined the maintenance department in Sep- tember and Gonzalez in Novera ber of 1961.
