SAN PEDRO (CBSLA) – One worker was killed and a second was injured after a tire exploded at the Port of Los Angeles Thursday morning.

At around 7:20 a.m., a tire on a top loader exploded at Fenix Marine Services terminal at Pier 300, a spokesperson for L.A. Port Police Department told CBS2.

L.A. County Fire Department crews arrived to find one worker dead at the scene. A second worker was rushed to a local hospital with unknown injuries.

Their names and genders were not immediately disclosed.

L.A. City Councilman Joe Buscaino issued a statement which read in part, “I am heartbroken to hear that this morning we lost one of our ILWU brothers in an industrial accident at the Port of Los Angeles while another has been seriously injured…Today is a tragic reminder of the danger that thousands of workers face every day working on our docks.”

The exact cause of the explosion was not confirmed. The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (CAL/OSHA) is investigating.
