The Morning Call reports an "investigation into a chemical plant explosion that killed five men near Allentown, Pennsylvania, on February 9, 1999. We learned that the plant owner, in his zeal to become the only American producer of high-concentration hydoxylamine, took short cuts that saved dollars but came with a cost: The deaths of four employees and a vendor in an adjoining building.... Workers didn't realize the chemical they were distilling was volatile - even more dangerous than dynamite."
