Cleveland, TN — June 11, 2018, Three workers were injured in a work-related accident involving a fire.
The incident in question took place around 8am in a kitchen on construction site of the Legacy Senior Living Center, located at 2255 Candies Lane.
According to investigators with the local fire department cited in media accounts, the three workers were in the commercial kitchen hooking up hoses to appliances when the fire began. It was allegedly initiated when one of the workers activated a cigarette lighter, igniting the natural gas vapors in the room.
Paramedics transported the three workers to the hospital with burn injuries, while one was later taken to a burn unit.
The construction company that employs the three injured men, Tricon, LLC, has not yet responded to journalists’ requests for comment regarding the purported use of the lighter as a possible violation of their work safety protocols.
