Police say five people have been injured in a gas explosion at a Rhode Island company that makes indoor rowing machines. 

Warren Police say they were called to WaterRower on Metacom Avenue late Wednesday morning for a gas explosion in the building. 

Five people were transported to Rhode Island Hospital with burns and other injuries. 

Police couldn't immediately describe the extent of the injuries. 

The rowing machine made by the company has played a role in the Netflix series "House of Cards,'' as it is used frequently by the show's lead character. 

An investigation is underway.
