    Death comes to all of us eventually. But this week it came too soon and came for those who should not have died.

    Well, then obvious is obvious, right?

    We may not know what caused the fire yet, but clearly somthing went wrong in order for the fire to happen.

    Was this fertilizer plant safety measures up to muster?

    It could be an accident; could be arson; could be sabotage. When water and the ingredients of fertilizer or fertilizer mix, things can go south. Someone could have made that happen as well. Who knows at this point. The son of the owner was saying last night they had no idea of the cause yet of the fire that resulted in the explosion.

    ****. That's going to stay with me.

    I saw pictures of the mushroom cloud from miles away. People must have legitimately wondered if a nuclear bomb had just gone off.

    All that is obvious at this point is that there was a fire and a huge explosion. Anything else is pure speculation.

    Right!
    user: American was saying "THEY" in his post.

    They started out calling it a crime scene

    I just wanted to know who "they" was.

    Re: Explosion hits fertilizer plant north of Waco, Texas

    When a rail car went up in my area when I was a kid, they first thought it was because they had not let some fertilizer cool when they cooked it. IIRC that later concluded that it was because something got wet in a localized rain shower and set off a chain reaction. It is really hard to even guess these things when it comes to something as reactive as fertilizer and its ingredients.

    Very sad indeed, one would think there were safety protocols in place to prevent it; but given the explosive nature of ammonium nitrate, it may be impossible to store it 100% safely.
