4 Killed in Chemical Plant Explosion

Comments Off

On Wednesday, December 19th, four workers were killed during a massive explosion at a chemical plant in Jacksonville, Florida. 14 others were injured as well.

T2 Laboratories Inc. Plant makes chemical solvents and fuel additives. It is still unclear on what actually caused the explosion.

The chemicals at the plant made the environment “incredibly dangerous for the first responders,” stated Tom Francis, a fire rescue spokesperson.

The U.S. Chemical Safety Board has planned on beginning an investigation Thursday morning. Everyone else at the plant was accounted for by Wednesday evening.
