Just two days after an explosion at the DC Casting Plant Number 5 at Olin Brass in East Alton injured two people, a fire has occurred at the property. A company spokesman says the fire was reported early in the afternoon Thursday in an unmanned area behind the facility. No one was injured.
Olin’s firefighters and other local units responded to the blaze, and had it contained fairly quickly. Meanwhile, the investigation continues into the incident that happened Tuesday. In that case, the company statement says the one person treated locally was released while the other was hospitalized in St. Louis
