RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. (AP) - Officials say two employees were injured in an explosion at a defense contracting company in a Sacramento suburb.

The incident occurred Tuesday morning at the Aerojet Rockedyne facility in Rancho Cordova. The company provides rocket and missile technology to the federal government.

Sacramento fire Capt. Michelle Eidam says one of the employees was evaluated and released at the scene. The other was taken to the hospital, although she did not know the person's condition.

Details about the explosion, where it occurred and how much damage it caused have not been released.

According to Eidam, sheriff's investigators have said they don't suspect criminal activity.

Eidam says state workplace safety officials and the FBI are helping with the investigation.
