On its Facebook page, the four-year-old brewery reported that the woman taken in the helicopter had been discharged and was in good condition. The other individual remained in the hospital Saturday evening. Neither have been identified.

Durham said there was no fire as a result of the explosion. The brewery offers tours each Saturday, and there were dozens of individuals standing outside shortly after the small blast.

Missing Frisco woman found in Muskogee, Oklahoma

DFW.CBSLOCAL.COM is reporting that Bethany Stroud, the 18-year-old Frisco woman who went missing after making a muffled 911 call Friday night, has been found in Muskogee, Okla.
Stroud called 911 just before 10 p.m. Saturday from a Braum’s location in Muskogee, about 140 miles from Oklahoma City.

She said she was kidnapped and managed to escape from her captor. Investigators are interviewing Stroud and a Frisco police spokesman said the teen is safe.

Stroud went missing Friday after leaving Dr Pepper Arena in Frisco where she worked. She made a 12- second 911 call, but a dispatcher reported no conversation on the line.
