At 2:30 p.m. on January 6, 1998, Employees #1 through #3, of Black Dog Productions, were at a movie set in Wilmington, NC, assisting in preparations for simulating a collision of two vehicles, which was to be followed by an explosion and fire. The vehicles had been rigged with 4 explosive charges using 15 ft of 100 grain detonating cord and a 2 gal gasoline container to produce the desired visual effects. During the testing and checking of the circuits, Employees #1 and #2 had returned to one of the vehicles to make modifications when a wire cable contacted the open ends of the electrical circuit that was to be used to trigger the explosion. The detonating cord and gasoline container exploded, and Employees #1 and #2 sustained severe burns. Employee #3 suffered burns when he tried to extinguish the flames on one of his coworkers. All three employees were hospitalized.
