Three Workers Killed in Waukegan plant blast

Vastavam web: Searchers have found the body of a third worker killed after a massive explosion and fire at a Chicago-area silicone plant, a fire official said on Sunday. Searchers were working to recover the body from beneath rubble at the facility in Waukegan, about 40 miles (65 km) north of downtown Chicago, said city Fire Marshal Steven Lenzi. He said the Friday night explosion was an accident and he had ruled out foul play.

Four workers were taken to a hospital after the explosion and two others declined treatment. The body of one worker was recovered from the plant on Saturday and another employee died later that day in hospital, Lenzi said.
