PERRY TWP., Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – One of the three victims in that explosion at TimkenSteel earlier this week is in a medically-induced coma in a Cleveland hospital.

They’re hoping to stabilize him before he undergoes surgery.

His brother-in-law on a GoFundMe page says Joseph Ferrall was burned over 75-percent of his body.

He and his wife have three young boys.

$59,000 had been raised for the family of five at last check.

The other two men taken to the hospital were reportedly treated and released for smoke inhalation and burns.

The explosion in the furnace in the melt shop occurred at the Faircrest plant in Perry Township Tuesday night.

Here’s Perry Township’s fire chief as interviewed live on Canton’s Morning News with Pam Cook on 1480 WHBC Radio Wednesday morning:

OSHA is investigating the blast.
