In 1965, at launch site # 4, 53 workers died in a flash fire while installing modifications to the launch silo.
The cause of the accident was believed to be a rupture in a high-pressure line, which spewed hydraulic fluid on the floor.
Ignited by sparks from a nearby welder, the resulting fire consumed most of the oxygen in the space, suffocating the workers.
