HOUSTON (AP) - Two people were killed after a massive explosion at a Houston industrial company.
The victims have been identified as two workers, Gerardo Castorena and Frank Flores.
The explosion happened about 4:30 a.m. Friday inside a building at Watson Grinding and Manufacturing, which makes valves and provides thermal-spray coatings for equipment in various industries.
Another 20 people were injured.
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo says authorities don’t believe Friday morning’s explosion was intentional though a criminal investigation is underway.
