Two people were killed, and three others were injured after an explosion and a massive fire engulfed several vehicles and buildings at a Medley welding business Tuesday morning.

On February 20:

Bedford, Ohio

At least 13 people were injured, and one reportedly died after an explosion rocked the I. Schumann & Co. foundry in Oakwood on Monday afternoon, according to Beacon Journal news partner News 5 Cleveland.

Steven Mullins, a 46-year-old man from North Ridgeville, Ohio, was found dead at the scene, said Christopher Harris, external affairs manager of the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The explosion occurred just over two weeks after a train carrying toxic chemicals derailed in another Ohio city, East Palestine, forcing residents to evacuate and sparking escalating fears over the safety of local water supplies.

Some Good News

In a bit of good news, the EPA is ordering Norfolk Southern to clean up East Palestine.

‚ÄėNorfolk Southern will pay for cleaning up the mess that they created and the trauma that they inflicted on this community and impacted Beaver County residents,‚Äô EPA Administrator Michael Regan said.

‚ÄėThis is common sense. This is their mess. They should clean it up,‚Äô President Joe Biden said in a statement posted on Twitter shortly after the EPA‚Äôs announcement.

The list of recent happenings (above) may not cover all events in the United States.

  1. Sabotage at our factories and rail derailments? Probably! Anything to bring our country down! Then doofus Biden goes to Ukraine, probably shoring up his gravy train over there, while all this is happening at home! Shows just whom he is more concerned about, and it ISN’T our country! He must be removed from office along with the ho, Schumer, Piglosi and all their cohorts! And the sooner, the better!
