Good morn ing--

The indiv idual in this story from Friday's news collection is also missing.


Federal regulators Thursday said "serious" safety violations at the DuPont chemical plant in the Town of Tonawanda led to last November's chemical explosion that killed a contractor working at the site.

Following a six-month probe, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced it plans to fine DuPont and contractor Mollenberg- Betz nearly $117,000 for 17 violations stemming from the blast that killed Richa rd J. Folaron and badly burned a co-worker.

A search of The Buffalo News archives found the combined penalty is the largest proposed fine issued by the local OSHA office for workplace safety violations over the past two years.

OSHA cited the companies for failing to make sure that any chemical res idue and flammable vapors were cleaned out of the storage tank before Folaron an d William R. Freeburg started doing welding work there.
