"This is very hard for everybody that's been there, including the families that sat for hours waiting for some type of information", Sheriff Dennis Richards said during a news conference.

The explosion and fire that leveled the plant at the milling complex also injured about a dozen others. Recovery crews searched a mountain of debris on Thursday fol.

OSHA hasn't cited the plant for anything since.

The body of a third person has been recovered from the site of Wednesday's mill explosion in Columbia County.

The sheriff in Columbia County said that the blast was reported around 11 p.m. Wednesday at the Didion Milling Plant in Cambria, about 80 miles northwest of Milwaukee. The first victim was found a short time after Wednesday's explosion. Eleven more were taken to area hospitals via ambulance and helicopter.

Derrick Clark, the plant's executive, identified the three workers killed in the blast as Duelle Block, Robert Goodenow and Pawel Tordoff. "Didion works strongly with our communities, supporting our parks and et cetera, so any loss for them is a loss for us". The cause of the incident remains under investigation, which will include a safety assessment by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

A fire broke out at the plant on Monday, but Clark said it was unrelated to the explosion. He declined to elaborate.

According to records obtained by the Wisconsin State Journal, the Didion Milling plant in Cambria was told by inspectors six years ago that they did not take proper precautions against dust explosions.

Didion Milling was cited in 2011 for the risk of dust explosions, but OSHA hasn't been back since 2014.

Dust explosions are a serious problem in handling grain, according to the U.S. Agriculture Department. The air violations related to inadequate measures to prevent dust from escaping the plant and polluting the air outside. He noted smoking is not allowed in the plant. We wish we weren't here for this reason, but it's just proof that something good comes out of something terrible, " Richards said.

The source and cause of the blast at the corn milling plant that processes corn for ethanol and other uses are unknown but investigators from federal agencies that include OSHA and state agencies that include the state Department of Justice's Division of Criminal Investigations are on the scene looking for clues, according to Clark. His niece, 33-year-old Sarah Goodenow, says she had an anxiety attack when she heard he had died.

"It's one of the worst days for the community", she said.

"It's good for the kids, because a lot of these kids are from right here in Cambria", Surges said.
