A diesel pickup truck by the road on the north side of ISOM was observed to have its engine racing, and was a high potential ignition source. 14 GUIDELINES FOR EVALUATING PROCESS PLANT BUILDINGS In the explosion, 15 workers in or near trailers sited to the west of the ISOM unit were killed.

As a result, the MCEs cannot be identified until the modeling and building assessments are complete. The potential impacts of an explosion will depend on several factors, including the strength of the building. A scenario that results in a more energetic explosion but is farther away from a building may not be as detrimental to the building occupants as a smaller scenario that is closer to the building. The release of a toxic material will not impair the integrity of a building envelope. The potential adverse effects of a toxic hazard on building occupants is influenced by the natural ventilation rate and the heating ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems present, rather than type of building construction.

Once the vessel's temperature gauge in the control room was reported to be reading 48 °C, instructions were given to isolate the steam. At approximately 1:20 PM, a number of employees involved in the raking left the base of the vessel. One person left on the scaffold had stopped raking.
