Thiokol's handling of lab fire improper, health officials say

Daily Herald (UT)

PROMONTORY -- Local health officials weren't notified for nearly six
hours about the explosion of a volatile research chemical that killed
one person and potentially posed a hazard, The Herald Journal reported
in a copyrighted story Thursday.

Bear River Health Department officials also were denied access for two
days to ATK Thiokol's Promontory Point facility after the Feb. 14
explosion, which killed one employee and severely injured another.

County health officials expressed their concerns this week to company
officials about how the company handled the aftermath of the explosion,
which involved a research chemical being tested for the military.
