One Employee Killed And One Injured In Flash Fire

At approximately 2:00 p.m. on April 17, 2001, two employees were removing window film material which was coated with a heptane-toluene- silicone mixture. The film had wrapped around a roller. When approximately 25 ft of film had been removed, a spark of static electricity is believed to have ignited the solvent vapors causing the fire.
