Jason Capps was identified as the man injured at the industrial building explosion on 2123 NE 46th Avenue in Saylor Township, Iowa just after 3 p.m. on November 10, WHO-TV reported.
Capps was rushed to the University of Iowa Hospital. A friend of his said he may be confined at the hospital for three months. Allegedly, 65% of his body was burned. The fire managed to destroy three business establishments: The Body Parts Store, Zee Zee Outlet, and United Classic Cars.
The investigators are pursuing a lead that suggested a worker transferring chemicals acted as a catalyst for the explosion. Local authorities assessed the damage to the building, which amounted to $1 million and comprised of lost equipment and cars.
