    Since they were on scene fighting a fire at the time of the explosion per MSNBC, I think it is safe to say quite a few firemen died unfortunately.

    The number of potential burn victims may just be too much for the medical resources of a small town.

    I am just saying when people look at things.. this is more tragic like it or not. People could have been warned prior to it going up.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken

    Care Flight Helicopters from all over Texas have been evacuating the injured to area hospitals in Dallas, Waco, Temple, and Austin for hours.

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Parkland here in Dallas is one of the number one burn centers in the country. It is also a level one trauma center.

    Driving Waco / West is about 90 minutes away. By helicopter I'm not sure what the time would be. I'm sure Parkland will send a news alert on facebook or something.
