An explosion possibly took place in an asphalt tank at the Seneca Petroleum plant in Lemont Tuesday morning. One person was killed in the fire and another was transported to Silver Cross Hospital.

OSHA officials said that both the person who died and the person who was injured were contractors on-site with M&J Industrial Services.

The Will County Coroner’s Office identified the man killed as 25-year-old Dru A. Worker of Homewood.

The sheriff’s office said multiple agencies responded, and the fire was put out after several hours. Fire personnel said it is not believed that any kind of hazardous material was released, and there is no danger to the public.

OSHA and ComEd were also called to the scene. Seneca Petroleum did not previously have any OSHA violations at the Lemont location.
