OSHA Investigating Explosion at Tonawanda Coke

TOWN Of TONAWANDA, N.Y.-- Our partners at the Investigative Post have uncovered two new details on last week's explosion at Tonawanda Coke.

OSHA., the federal agency that enforces worker safety and health laws, has opened an investigation into the incident.

Also, two sources confirmed to Environmental Reporter Dan Telvock that at least one person was hurt at the plant, with minor burns. That conflicts with the press release from Tonawanda Coke that says "no one was hurt."

Last week, the state DEC reported the explosion was significant, while the company and first responders said it was minor.
