Dr. Charlie Burke was the director of the KIVA Laboratories in Bannon, New Mexico at the time an explosion ripped through the facility. Fortunately for him, he had been detained earlier in the day and wasn’t able to meet and greet the visiting Dr. Sidney Marlowe as he had planned. Had he followed through with that plan he would have likely been caught in the explosions himself.
In the aftermath of the explosions Charlie was lead coordinator for rescue and containment procedures.
