American Elastomer Products Side Effects May Lead To Personal Injury Lawsuits

American Elastomer Products | Lawsuits, Lawyers | Side Effects: Injury, Deaths | Houston Texas Warehouse Explosion, High-Pressure Vessel Failure

On March 8, 2007, a Houston, Texas warehouse was evacuated after a deadly explosion. The explosion took place at the manufacturing area of American Elastomer Products, which produces rubber products. Officials said approximately 40 people were evacuated from the complex, and one fatality occurred. The blast is believed to be the result of a high-pressure vessel failure.

Residents said the blast was felt up to as far as a mile away. Other buildings in the industrial park sustained damage, officials said. Witnesses say the explosion destroyed walls and windows and ignited a fire at the warehouse, which is about two miles southeast of downtown. Houston firefighters at first feared a secondary explosion would occur, but that didn't happen. HazMat has determined there's nothing toxic at the scene.

Investigators are working to determine the cause of the explosion. American Elastomer Products is part of Houston-based American Packing and Gasket Co., a fabricator and distributor of hydraulic seals, industrial hose couplings and other rubber products.
