Hours after an explosion at a small metal recycler in Alton Park injured six workers Friday, bulldozers were back to moving large piles of scrap metal, and office staff members were back to work.

Chattanooga police and firefighters went to Designed Alloy Products at 3033 Alton Park Blvd. just after 7:30 a.m. Friday in response to reports of a fire and explosion, fire department spokesman Bruce Garner said.
