LEXINGTON, Neb. (AP) _ One person has been injured in a grain elevator explosion at a feed yard in south central Nebraska.

The explosion occurred Wednesday morning at Dawson Feeders in Lexington. Office Assistant Tracey Johnson says a female employee was burned in the explosion and is being treated at the burn center at Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center.

Authorities have not released more information about the accident.  Lexington Fire Chief Dahlas Holbein says a roof collapsed but there was no visible fire when officials arrived on the scene.

Regina Shields with the Nebraska State Fire Marshal's Office says the explosion has been deemed an accident. She says the old elevator was being used as a feed mill.

A message left for the burn center was not immediately returned.
