TORRINGTON - While the cause of an explosion at FuelCell Energies that injured five workers remained uncertain Tuesday, officials said they were concentrating their investigative efforts on a manufacturing process that creates a device called "the matrix."

Bill Baker, a spokesperson for Danbury-based FuelCell Energies said the cause of the explosion was uncertain, but are focusing their study on a manufacturing process that involves removing solvents from a liquid.

"We're still trying to figure out the cause of the explosion," Baker said Tuesday. "The process where the explosion occurred uses solvents so that's the first place to look."
