CHEMICAL PLANT

"On April 8, 1998, an explosion and fire occurred during the production of Automate Yellow 96 Dye at the Morton International Inc. plant in Paterson, New Jersey. The explosion and fire were the consequence of a runaway reaction, which overpressurized a 2000-gallon chemical vessel and released flammable material that ignited. Nine employees were injured." - Chemical Safety Board

This fire photo is from the collection of Bruno Wendt.
According to Mr. Wendt: "The idea is to make these pictures available so that those who were there can say, `Hey! I Was There!' Or, 'Hey! I remember that.' These pictures are from my personal collection and are for personal use by the viewer only."
