Summary Nr: 200041028Event: 12/08/2005Employee Dies From Flash Fire Burns
At approximately 5:15 p.m. on December 8, 2005, Employee #1 was cleaning out the coils from a hot oiler truck, at the work yard for Gandy Corporation. He was pumping hot water through the coils to push the crude oil out of the coils and into the wash pit in the yard. The hot water and oil in the pit caused a volatile cloud to form. Employee #1 was injured when the wind pushed the cloud into the lit burners on the truck, causing a flash fire. He was engulfed in flames and died in the hospital later that day.
