On Monday, October 17 multiple workers were injured on the job at a Glenville, NY asphalt plant. The workers suffered burns from a tanker truck blast. According to officials it wasn’t initially clear what caused the blast, but preliminary evidence suggests the valve of the tanker could have malfunctioned.
Firefighters from a number of fire departments worked to contain the fire. Police closed the bridge at Erie Boulevard and Maxon Road extension as a safety precaution.
