US Chemical Safety Board Schedules Public Hearing For Husky Refinery Fire
The United States Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board has been investigating the Husky Refinery fire as requested by members of Congress. The board has scheduled a public hearing that will take place on December 12th at 10 am at the UWS Yellow Jacket Union Hall at 10 am.
According to the Duluth News Tribune, the hearing will provide updates on the findings and inquiry into the Husky Refinery fire that took place on April 26th.
One of the main concerns and why members of Congress requested the hearings is the presence of the hydrogen flouride tanks at Husky Refinery. These tanks were 150 feet away from the explosion, and while none of the hazardous chemical was released, questions about the safety of the community have prompted the investigation and hearings.
