Texas Fertilizer Plant Explosion Leads To Twelve Confirmed Deaths; Bodies Recovered From Site

| Filed under: Sad Sad

texas fertilizer plant casualties

This week has just been horrifying, what with the Boston bombings and the Texas fertilizer plant explosion.

It was announced today that twelve bodies have been recovered from the West, Texas blast site. Sgt. Jason Reyes said that while 200 people have been injured and 50 homes destroyed, the terrible incident is “still being treated as a crime scene.”

While the reason behind the fertilizer plant’s fire and subsequent explosion on Wednesday is still unknown, so is the exact amount of damage done. And though many are still unaccounted for, we do know that five West firefighters, one Dallas firefighter, and four emergency responders were killed.

So sad. Our thoughts are with all in West, Texas.

    Thank You for keeping up with this. I know West isn't as large as Boston. Only having about 2400 members in the community. Living only about 25miles from West it's nice to see their story being covered as well. All we can do is keep praying and supporting this lovely little town.
