ROCKTON (WREX) —More federal help has arrived in the Stateline to investigate what caused the Chemtool fire last week.

Two senior leadership members from the U.S. Chemical Safety Board arrived on Monday.

The two will connect with federal, state and local responders to determine what caused the fire as well as other circumstances that led to the fire and how to prevent similar incidents from happening.

The CSB is an agency that operates separate from the Environmental Protection Agency and will help officials moving forward.
