A fourth person has died from last week’s explosion in Columbia County.

According to a statement from Didion Milling, Angel Reyes, 46, died at UW Hospital from his injuries sustained in the explosion. 

“We report with heavy hearts that early this morning, Mr. Angel Reyes, 46, passed away at UW Hospital as a result of injuries sustained in the incident last week," the statement said. "Angel was a pack operator at Didion and will be greatly missed. Our condolences go out to the Reyes family. We ask for continued prayers as we go through this difficult time."

The explosion last Wednesday also killed Robert Goodenow, Pawel Tordoff and Duelle Block. Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the blast.
