The flag flying at half mast in front of the rubble left from a May 31 explosion at a corn mill plant at the Didion Milling complex in Cambria has been raised to full staff after the last person injured in the blast was released from the hospital. Five workers died as a result of the explosion.

CAMBRIA - The flag outside the Wisconsin mill where five people were killed in an explosion has once again been raised to full staff.

The flag-raising this week during an emotional ceremony at Didion Milling in Cambria was to mark the release of the last person who was hospitalized with injuries.

WKOW-TV reports company president Riley Didion says getting everyone who was injured back home is a step worth marking in the recovery process. 

Five employees working the overnight shift May 31 died of injuries suffered in the explosion. About a dozen others were injured.

The cause of the explosion remains under investigation.
