Some are left injured after a 'violent chemical reaction' at the Aberdeen Proving Ground Tuesday afternoon. 

Officials say the reaction was an isolated incident under a fumed hood, and they are not comfortable calling it an explosion at this time.

There were reported injuries, but there is no word on how many or the severity of the injuries. The reaction is still under investigation.
