CELINA, Ohio (WDTN) – Two contractors injured in a grain elevator explosion remained hospitalized Friday.

Chad Reynolds and Thomas Haines are both listed as stable at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

The men were hurt after an explosion and dust fire at Mercer Landmark Thursday morning.

Investigators continue to search for an official cause, although they are checking whether the installation of a new dust fan contributed.
