Two workers filed a lawsuit against a power plant company in Connecticut owned by O&G Industries after a deadly explosion.

The workers say proper safety procedures were not followed and led to the explosion earlier this month. Six workers were killed and 20 were injured in the blast.

The workers' attorney says a gas-fueled torch heater was running and welding and grinding were taking place before the explosion. He says workers were not warned an explosive gas was not contained.

A spokesman for the company declined to comment.
