Company involved in Manchester diesel tank blast was fined in 2001
Garcia, a teenager at the time of the accident, said she wasn't aware that the company had been fined $125 and that it had admitted no wrongdoing.
Daniel Lowry, communications director for the Kentucky Labor Cabinet, which proposed the penalty, said Friday that penalties are "not based on the fact someone was killed. ... It's based on what the company did wrong or if the company did anything wrong."
In the Sept. 9 fire, a work light fell into the tank and onto a power roller used to spray a chemical mixture onto fiberglass in the tank, Manchester Deputy Fire Marshal Rick Clement said.
Donald Scott, 24, of Andrews, S.C., was in critical condition and unconscious, Clement said. "They say every day he's still living is a good sign," he said.
Clement said his department's investigation showed a supervisor narrowly escaped injury, leaving the tank "within seconds" before the flash fire.
"The flash fire is what killed my brother-in-law in an up-ground tank," Robeson said in a phone interview from Missouri."We had a closed casket."
