Officials are identifying two contractors who were killed in an industrial chemical leak in La Porte.

The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences says 32-year-old Shawn Kuhleman of Arlington and 36-year-old Dustin Day of Fort Hood died in the accident on Tuesday.

Dozens of others were injured when 100-thousand pounds of acetic acid were released at the LyondellBasell plant on Miller Cut-Off road. The cause of the leak is still under investigation.
