HOUSTON (KTRK) -- An investigation continues this morning at a northwest Houston company after an explosion led to an employee's death.

It happened around 8:30pm last night at the Madden Bolt Galvanizing Corporation in the 13,400 block of Hempstead.

Police say an explosion caused a large piece of metal to fall on top of employees. One person died, and there are no reports of anyone else injured.
