A paint canister exploded near a supermarket warehouse in Netanya on Thursday, injuring three workers, all men in their 40s. One worker was moderately-to-seriously injured, another moderately injured and the third lightly hurt.

An emergency response team treated the three workers' burns at the scene, then evacuated the moderately injured men to Petah Tikva's Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus. The third worker, who was lightly injured, was transferred to Laniado Hospital in Netanya.
