Fire official: Cause of plant explosion near

A fire official says investigators are close to pinpointing the cause of an explosion that killed five workers at a power plant under construction in Connecticut.

Middletown Deputy Fire Marshal Al Santostefano tells The Associated Press that officials are close to identifying the point of origin for Sunday's explosion at Kleen Energy Systems, and that will help them determine the cause.

Also Wednesday, the brother of one of the blast's victim said he was unhappy with the project and had described problems, tensions and pressure to finish the job.

Carl Crabb says his brother, Ron, told him "the job was really screwed up" and he wished he hadn't taken it. Crabb's account comes after the son of another worker killed said his father was working more than 80 hours per week.
