Fire Curtails Steelmaking at North Star BlueScope

No one was injured, but production was disrupted, due to an explosion and fire May 8 in one of the electric arc furnaces at North Star BlueScope’s Delta, Ohio, mill. A refractory failure allowed a washout of molten steel from the company’s South EAF shell, causing an estimated $5 million in damage.

While the company continues to assess the effects on operations, it estimates the incident will result in a loss of 35,000 tons of production. North Star BlueScope continues to produce steel at the facility through use of a second EAF.
