Closed Valve Likely Caused Fatal Houston Blast, Feds Say

The board is continuing its investigation into the June 11 blast and likely will focus on the company's practices for managing, inspecting, and maintaining relief systems; training operators and accounting for workers during emergencies, said CSB Chairman John Bresland.
