No Criminal Intent in West, Texas Fertilizer Plant Explosion [VIDEO]

Fourteen people died with some 200 injured, and less than one week after a fertilizer plant explosion, the city of West is beginning its chapter of moving forward, even though the people of this tiny town will have lingering memories of the devastation that ripped through their community without warning on the evening of April 17.

Some of Sunday’s church services were held outside, in a field, while today marks the return of students to makeshift classrooms, but it is the investigation into why this happened, and preventing a similar tragedy, that are on the minds of those residents lucky enough to escape with their lives.

Authorities have found the origin of the explosion while announcing no criminal involvement.  Now, state lawmakers must decide if stricter standards should be required for chemical storage facilities.
