At about 11:30 a.m. on March 5, 1990, Employee #1, a welder in the welding area of a maintenance shop, was using an oxyacetylene torch to cut angled metal. He was resting the metal on a 55 gallon drum filled with hydraulic oil. It is assumed that Employee #1 put too much heat on the drum, causing it to explode. Employee #1 sustained serious burns and died 10 days later.
