Posted By Arnold & Itkin || 16-Jan-2016

At 12:45 p.m. on Saturday, January 16, a chemical tank exploded at a PeroxyChem plant in Pasadena, TX. According to officials, the explosion occurred when employees of the plant and contractors were conducting a routine function. They stated that one contractor and two employees were taken to a local hospital to be treated for injuries that included a broken arm and toxic exposure.

One of the contractors died at the scene of the accident.

Authorities are reporting that there was a tank leak that involved approximately 1,000 gallons of an oil-based cleaning solution; that chemical has not yet been identified by the company.

Currently, the incident is being investigated and the cause is unknown.

"We are deeply saddened to report the loss of the contractor," stated PeroxyChem in a statement released today. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones,"
