On September 25, 1995, Employees #1 and #2 were cleaning up from the evening meal and preparing for the next day's breakfast when an explosion occurred in the kitchen of the dining hall. Employee #1 was killed and Employee #2 was hospitalized with head injuries. Four days earlier, Employee #2 had installed a new underground liquid propane gas line. The new line had a faulty connection near the kitchen (basement) cement block wall. Gas is believed to have been trapped in the holes of the block and an ignition source, an electrical spark from a fan or other source set off the explosion. None of the kitchen appliances used liquid propane gas; the stove, oven, and microwave were all electric.
