PORT WENTWORTH, GA -- Investigators have released new surveillance video of the massive plant explosion in Georgia.
The video was taken near the Imperial Sugary Refinery on February 7.
You can see the big fireball light up the night sky over the Savannah suburb.
Investigators have also released a cause. They believe the explosion was caused by a cloud of sugar dust that ignited beneath the plant's silos.
The explosion killed nine people and injured dozens more. The body of the last, missing worker was recovered from the debris-littered break room Thursday.
Explosion experts have traced the blast to a basement area where refined sugar was loaded onto conveyor belts. They are still trying to figure out what ignited the dust.
