3 Workers Sickened At W.V. Chemical Plant

BELLE, W.Va. (AP) - DuPont is trying to determine what sickened three workers at its plant in Belle.

WSAZ-TV reports that the workers fell ill at different times Monday night and Tuesday. All three had been in an area of the plant that's shut down for scheduled maintenance.

DuPont says one employee is in a stable condition at an area hospital. Another employee was treated at the hospital and released.

A plant contract employee was taken to the hospital Tuesday for evaluation.

DuPont says the plant is investigating.
