Video shows Verla International cosmetics explosionPosted: Updated:
News 12 has obtained video of a factory explosion that killed one man and forced more than 200 people to flee their New Windsor workplace last week.
As News 12 has reported, an explosion rocked the Verla International cosmetics factory last Monday.
Video shows an employee wiping down a container seconds before a fireball consumes several barrels. Investigators say they think static electricity ignited a flammable liquid.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration had issued nine serious violations against the factory earlier this year. OSHA says the citations came as recently as April.
