Area Explosion Lawsuit Emerges

The daughter of a Napoleon man, killed in a junkyard explosion has filed a lawsuit against the company. Jeffery Keehn was killed in November 2017 while working at Hogrefe Auto Parts. Keehn was using a torch to cut parts off a pickup when gasoline vapors ignited, causing a fire and explosion. Keehn, who was still underneath the vehicle at the time, was killed in the fire that spread to three other vehicles and other equipment on the property. Attorneys for the man’s daughter say the cause of the fire was the fault of Hogrefe Auto Parts for not removing the fuel tank or draining it of gasoline before Keehn started to work on the vehicle.
