A second person has died from his injuries after an explosion at the Letterkenny Army Depot in Chambersburg last month.

According to the depot, the employee died at the hospital where he was being treated.

Five employees were injured on July 19 after an explosion resulted in a fire.

One employee, identified as 29-year-old Eric Byers of New Garden Township, Chester County, died the day after the explosion.

Two employees were treated for smoke inhalation and released the same day.

One employee is still hospitalized, according to Letterkenny.

OSHA is still investigating the incident, along with Letterkenny's Safety and Engineering Offices and emergency and fire services.

We've been tracking the GoFundMe pages for the people injure during the explosion.

A GoFundMe for Rick Barnes posted an update a few hours ago saying that Rick lost his fight.

The post goes on to say "We thank everyone for everything that they have done for our family for the last 3 weeks."
