Would a lightning strike not let off enough energy to cause any explosive in te dumptster to explode? But allegdedly they were putting the fire out and it exploded. Sounds to me like a cover up!!

what was in that dumpster was hazardous but "the big dogs" up there will never admit it. its stuff thats been there since american alloys & they get rid of a little at a time, they could care less about the safety of their workers, treat the union workers like slaves what a disgrace something needs done up there before someone else dies..its been along time since thats happened but with company its bound to happen.
