AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Another burn patient has died of injuries suffered in an explosion at a Georgia sugar refinery, bringing the death toll to 13.
Six patients remain in critical condition a little more than a month after the blast at the Imperial Sugar plant in Port Wentworth. Four are in serious condition.
Investigators have said the explosion was fueled by airborne sugar dust at the refinery, near Savannah. They have not yet determined what ignited it.
