Huge fertilizer plant explosion rocks West, Texas [photos]; Updates

There are reports of multiple injuries following an explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas. Reports say the blast could be felt up to 65 miles away.




WKTX reports:

Emergency crews from throughout Central Texas responded Wednesday night after a major explosion at a burning fertilizer plant in West north of Waco. West firefighters were dispatched to the plant earlier in the evening after an earlier fire rekindled. The explosion was reported at around 7:50 p.m. in a frantic radio call from the scene of the fire at West Fertilizer at 1471 Jerry Mashek Dr. just off Interstate 35. Numerous injuries were reported and multiple ambulances were requested. Several buildings were reported destroyed and a nearby nursing home was damaged.



Twitchy will update with details as they become available.

Some media outlets are reporting 5-15 dead.

This is lower than last night’s estimates, but the numbers may rise as additional bodies are discovered at daylight.
