More Information on the Seguin Steel Mill Accident
The two men were injured when a molten material leaked and started a small fire.
Clifton Wright, 21, and Gabriel Garcia, 41, were both taken to a nearby hospital. Wright was deemed in critical condition and Garcia suffered less serious injuries.
The fire department responded to the fire but was postponed to enter the building until an issue with a gas line in the building was stabilized.
This is the second fire at CMC Steel Texas in the short span of a month. The previous fire resulted in a 15 hour attempt by the fire department to extinguish the fire.
