Steven Sohlstrom, FlightFlash.com

An overheated compressor has been determined as the root cause of the Verso Paper Mill explosion.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety State Fire Marshal wrapped up their investigation and released a full report on Monday.

Investigator John Steinbach says the plant experienced a severe reduction of cooling water flow to it’s compressors.

This caused one compressor to overheat, leading to the explosion and fire that claimed a life.
