At 8:00 a.m. on January 29, 1990, Employees #1 and #2 were assigned to light a wood-burning incinerator. This was not among their normal duties. When the incinerator was loaded with paper and wooden pallets, Employee #1 took a 5-gallon plastic bucket partially filled with gasoline and soaked the paper and pallets. He then lit a small piece of paper, threw it through the open incinerator door, and tried to close it. The gas ignited, causing the door to fly open and strike both employees. Employee #1 was hospitalized for treatment of his injuries.
