In my kagan group we have been learning about Wilson hat factory. On Monday 14 january at Wilson’s hat factory a major explosion occurred in which 13 people were killed, 12 were severely injured and 39 received minor injuries. The explosion occurred in the proofing department, which was totally destroyed ,and two planking shops were also damaged. It it understood that the explosion was caused by the ignition of vapour arising from methylated spirit that formed part of a process for dyeing hat bodies.The report of the explosion was heard for miles around and in the immediate location the Shock wave felt like an earthquake. Windows of nearby homes were shattered and some residents were thrown violently from there chairs.                                                               Skye kay
