(CNN) -- A worker wounded in an explosion early this month at a Georgia sugar refinery died Saturday night at a burn center, bringing the death toll to 11, hospital officials announced Sunday.
The person, who has not been identified, is the third victim to die at The Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctors Hospital, in Augusta, Georgia. Another worker died Friday.
The hospital said 14 Imperial Sugar Co. workers injured in the explosion remain hospitalized -- 12 in critical condition, and two in serious condition.
The bodies of 8 workers were recovered after the February 7 explosion at the refinery -- located in Port Wentworth, Georgia, near Savannah.
Tons of smoldering sugar remained ablaze for days afterward, hampering rescue and recovery efforts.
A memorial service for employees killed in the explosion was held on Saturday at the Savannah Civic Center. E-mail to a friend
