Construction worker hurt in flash fire

Posted on Tuesday, May 21st, 2013 at 4:47 pm    

A construction company is currently conducting an investigation after one of its workers was injured in a flash fire in Otho, Monday afternoon.

According to Webster County Sheriff Jim Stubbs, the worker, whose name is being withheld, was taking apart a distributor with a torch at the top of a grain elevator at around 1 p.m. when the incident happened. New Co-op Safety Manager Dennis Knight said the incident appeared to be a flash fire rather than an explosion. The injured worker was transported to Trinity Regional Medical Center after he sustained burns on
his face and arms.
