WATCH: Dramatic Video Shows Deadly Explosion Inside New York Cosmetic Plant


Authorities on Wednesday released surveillance footage showing the first of two explosions that rocked an Orange County cosmetics plant, killing a male employee and injuring over 100 people.

Officials have determined the fire was accidental in nature and started when static electricity caused the ignition of hexamethyldisiloxane, an ignitable liquid, when a worker was wiping excess product in the plant’s batch room.
