Tenth anniversary since deadly CTA explosion in Corbin

CORBIN, Ky. (WKYT) - Wednesday marks the tenth anniversary of an explosion that killed seven workers, and injured 37 others.

The February 20, 2003 explosion damaged the CTA Accoustics plant in Corbin. The facility produced fiberglass insulation for the automotive industry.

Investigators later found the explosion was fueled by resin that accumulated in a production area, and likely ignited from a malfunctioning oven.
