TOONE, TN. (WBKO) -- A worker that was seriously burned after an explosion at the Kilgore Plant in Toone Tennessee, has died.

Michael Chism was burned over 90% of his body in Saturday's blast.

The plant is under investigation after having two explosions just a few hours apart.

No one was hurt in the second blast, which is being called a controlled explosion.

Agents from the ATF say they should have some answers as to what caused the first explosion quickly.

The plant makes military decoy flares.
