I was a business consultant for a large insurance company for some years. It was my job to ensure that companies such as panel beaters and saw mills had proper extraction and intrinsically safe electrical installations.
Explosions caused by flammable particles happens frequently, dust explosions not so much.
Under these conditions static discharge is a huge concern. I suspect that the powder spraying guns weren't checked for that. That or somebody lighting a cigarette.
I doubt the lights had anything to do with it. Dust doesn't have a flash point and the flames spread way to fast for that.
