The fire and explosion at a West, Texas fertilizer factory on Tuesday has all but decimated the entire town. Dozens of people dead, hundreds wounded. CBS News reported it like this:
“Emergency crews were called to the scene at about 7:30 p.m. to battle a small fire at the West Fertilizer Company, located in the 1400 block of Jerry Mashek Drive, just off of Interstate-35 between Waco and the DFW area. Firefighters were trying to control that blaze when an explosion happened. Emergency officials are among those confirmed dead, and some first responders are among the missing, but no names have been released.
The blast damaged as many as 75 nearby homes and gutted units in an apartment complex, according to State Trooper D.L. Wilson. “We’ve got a lot of houses on one street, especially there, that look like a war zone,” added EMS director Dr. George Smith. “They’ve been collapsed, so there may be people inside those houses, either critically injured or deceased.”
Now a homemade smartphone video has come to light, and about 28 seconds into it, you see something come down from above with great impact. To me, it does not look like an explosion from a fire which would start at the bottom and go up. Whatever this is it comes down from above, strikes, and then we see the terrifying explosion.
Watch and decide for yourself….
