One Employee Is Killed,Two Employees Injured In Explosion

That area of the mill, approximately 10-ft by 15-ft, was enclosed to contain the noise of that system. There was an explosion and fire, which caused the mill's enclosure to blow apart. Employees #1 and #2 were inside the enclosure, and Employee #3 was outside the enclosure, when the explosion happened. The employees sustained second and third degree burns. Employees #1 and #2 were transported to LSU Hospital in Shreveport, Louisiana, where they were hospitalized. Employee #3 was transported by air to Regional Medical in Memphis, Tennessee, where he died on August 31, 2007 due to complications from his burn injuries.
