HATTIESBURG — The U.S. Chemical Safety Board plans to release a report tomorrow on a fatal petroleum facility accident in south Mississippi that left two teenagers dead.
CSB chairman Rafael Moure-Eraso is scheduled to present the findings during a 9 a.m. news conference at the Hampton Inn in Hattiesburg.
On Oct. 31, 2009, 18-year-old Wade White and 16-year-old Devon Byrd were killed when an oil tank, located in a clearing in the woods near the home of one of the boys in the town of Carnes, exploded.
About a year later, Forrest County officials adopted rules that would require companies to install perimeter fencing around sites, post appropriate signs and provide 24-hour telephone numbers in case of emergencies.
