    I didn't hear about this but as soon as I saw the word "Fertilizer Plant" I knew it had something to do with explosion; I was actually shocked that it was only burning / on fire at the beginning (chemistry regarding the NH4NO3 inside of fertilizer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ammonium_nitrate).

    I am deeply hurt to hear that there are fatalities regarding this incident.

    "Debby Marak told the AP that when she finished teaching her religion class Wednesday night, she noticed a lot of smoke in the area across town near the plant. She said she drove over to see what was happening, and that when she got there, two boys came running toward her screaming that the authorities had ordered everyone out because the plant was going to explode.
    She said she had driven only about a block when it did."

    "In 2001, an explosion at a chemical and fertilizer plant killed 31 people and injured more than 2,000 in Toulouse, France. The blast occurred in a hangar containing 300 tons of ammonium nitrate, which can be used for both fertilizer and explosives. The explosion came 10 days after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the U.S., and raised fears at the time it was linked. A 2006 report blamed the blast on negligence."

    Its good that someone read the MSDS, they probably saved a lot of lives.

        Having any factory that can cause a major explosion near a school is moronic.

        No zoning regulations fail.

        Heard on the news that this place had a violation and hadn't been inspected for 20+ years.
