LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Nearly two years since a deadly explosion at a Louisville plant we'll learn more about what led up to the blast.

The deadly fire and explosion in March 2011 at Carbide Industries in Rubbertown happened when an electric furnace over-pressurized and spewed powdered debris, hot gases and molten calcium carbide.

Two workers were killed in the blast.

Findings from the investigation will be released Thursday night during a public meeting which starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Seelbach Hotel.
