An earth-rattling explosion at a Texas fertilizer plant killed at least 5 to 15 people, wounded more than 160 and destroyed dozens of homes and businesses, including a nursing home, officials said.
Those still missing on Thursday morning included three to five firefighters who were battling a blaze at the plant when it blew up, shaking the ground with the force of a magnitude-2.1 earthquake and unleashing a giant plume of smoke over the small town of West.

Wow... I was not expecting that at all during the video, I thought the horrendous fire during the first half was the explosion.

Another sad loss of life.

Yeah the fire itself was terrible enough. And then for it to explode in a huge fireball (strong enough that it caused a small earthquake)...just insane. There's reports that the blast just leveled a bunch of buildings nearby.
