EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE -- New information about the civilian contractor who was killed in an accident at Eglin Air Force Base.
The fire suppression system inside King Hangar was somehow triggered around noon yesterday.
That system releases a foam similar to soap or dish detergent.

They say Lord was a tool and parts attendant with DS2 and had been a contract employee at Eglin since 2006.
Lord is survived by his wife and one child.
Three other contractors working with him were treated for inhaling the foam
