BRYAN, Texas (AP) - A worker at a Central Texas electric power plant has died following a fiery explosion that left two other employees hurt.

City of Bryan spokeswoman Gina Florence on Tuesday identified the victim as 59-year-old Earle Robinson III.

Florence says Robinson died Sunday at a Houston hospital, where he was taken following the April 29 accident at the Bryan Texas Utilities plant. Florence had no cause of death for Robinson, who had worked for the utility for more than 13 years.

Investigators are trying to determine what sparked the fire at the city-run Atkins plant. Two other injured workers were treated and released from a Bryan hospital the same day as the accident.
