UCLA fined nearly $32K after deadly fire
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The state has slapped UCLA with nearly $32,000 in safety fines stemming from a deadly fire.
The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health found a research assistant had not been trained properly and wasn't wearing protective clothing when an experiment exploded at a campus chemistry lab in December.
The female victim was burned over 43 percent of her body and died 18 days later.
The agency also says the university didn't address problems identified in an internal safety inspection two months before the fire.
