Raymond Church, an employee at the ArcelorMittal coke plant in Monessen, was listed in fair condition Thursday afternoon at UPMC Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh after a weekend accident at the plant.

A hospital official confirmed Church is in the hospital's burn unit, recovering from injuries he suffered Saturday.

Citing federal laws, the hospital could not disclose Church's age or place of residence.

Company officials on Wednesday confirmed the accident happened, but would not provide any other details, saying the company was conducting an internal investigation.

The plant, which has been on hot-idle status since ArcelorMittal ceased operations in May 2009, is set to reopen in the next few days, a company spokeswoman said Wednesday.
