Victims of the CTA Acoustics Plant explosion remembered

Folks gathered Saturday morning to remember the victims of the CTA Acoustics Plant explosion, seven years ago.

The explosion, in Corbin, killed 7 employees and injured 37 others.

Federal regulators ruled combustible dust caused the explosion.

The company that made the dust was ordered to pay CTA Acoustics more than $120,000,000 after it was found liable for the 2003 explosion.

Saturday's ceremony was private.
