Six workers were sent to the hospital last Wednesday after an arc flash explosion at a Dortec Industries plant in Newmarket that manufactures door latches for vehicles. The arc blast was isolated to one manufacturing line and while the company is investigating the cause, they do not expect the incident to disrupt regular business as the blast did not cause any damage to equipment or building structure. Out of nine people injured, six were sent to the hospital and released the same day. The victims in this article are fortunate that their injuries were non-life-threatening.
