EPA says Cary firm rocked by explosion needs to stay closed
The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency wants a court order to prevent a Cary spray painting company from restarting its operations after three employees were injured after a Wednesday explosion and fire.
Portions of the front and rear walls of Fox Valley Systems were blown out in two reported explosions, and more than 20 businesses in the industrial park were evacuated.
The business, at 640 Industrial Drive, is a marking and striping company that does traffic and athletic field painting.
IEPA Director John Kim asked Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan to seek the order from a McHenry County judge to ensure there has been an investigation to implement preventative measures before the facility is allowed to restart operations.
