NATCHEZ, Miss.—Two workers were hospitalized—one in a burn unit—after a flash fire broke out Oct. 4 in a Banbury mixer at Titan Tire Corp.'s Natchez tire plant. Both employees, who are among about 200 replacement workers hired during the year-long Steelworkers strike in Natchez, suffered burns when carbon black dust ignited, said David Fines, the plant's operations manager.
