Worker Wounded in Iowa Chemical Fire Explosion

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.
