Fire marshal's office believes oil tank explosion was an accident | News
WHITE CO, IL (WFIE)-
The Illinois State Fire Marshal's Office say they believe last week's oil tank explosion that left four men hurt in White County was an accident.
However, it's up to OSHA to determine whether or not the explosion could have been prevented.
The state fire marshal's office says it will continue it's investigation to determine what caused the explosion.
State fire marshals hope to have their report completed next week, and then OSHA will look at those findings as its investigators continue to comb through evidence. OSHA will then have up to six months to decide whether or not there were safety violations and if fines will be issued.
