Abstract: At 6:00 a.m. on May 6, 2016, an employee was involved in the removal of a 4 inch line that was labeled non-condensable gas. As the pipe was being removed on one end, ethyl-alcohol spilled out of the pipe. The alcohol splashed on the employees pants in the process. The alcohol spilled out and ended up going through the scaffolding and through the grated flooring to the second floor. Two welders were welding on the second floor and ignited a fire. The fire went up through the floors to the six floor where the employee involved in the pipe removal was working and the employee was severely burned. On Saturday, May 7, 2016 the employee died from severe burns.
