An old chemical plant in the heart of downtown Lodi exploded and burned Friday morning, killing four workers, injuring eight others, forcing the evacuation of nearby homes and sending a dense plume of toxic black smoke over much of western Bergen County.

The blast at Napp Technologies was apparently tied to a malfunctioning mixing vat for chemicals.
