The men were working on an electrical panel when a small explosion, which resulted in a small fire, knocked them back, he said.

“(The men) were not unconscious, but they received minor burns to face and head,” Gonzales said.

Firefighters quickly doused the fire, which was contained to the electrical room, in about 15 minutes.

Shop employees were in the shop, but did not suffer injuries. They were waiting outside the shop when firefighters arrived, Gonzales said.

Southern California Edison was inspecting the electrical panel to make sure it was safe.

The cause of the fire was under investigation. A damage estimate was not immediately available.
