JAY, Maine (AP) — State and federal investigators began digging into the cause of a Maine paper mill explosion that sent debris and a slurry of chemicals raining down on nearby cars and buildings.

The mill was shut down indefinitely as elation over the stunning news that that no one was harmed shifted to worries Thursday about the future of the mill that employs 500 people and is the town's largest taxpayer.
