President Obama To Attend Service For West Victims

WASHINGTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – The White House says President Barack Obama and First Lady Michele Obama will attend a memorial service for victims of the fertilizer plant explosion in the town of West, Texas.

The service is scheduled for Thursday at Baylor University in Waco.

Last week’s blast left 14 people dead and injured 200 others. The explosion was largely overshadowed by the Boston Marathon bombing.

Federal and state investigators are still trying to determine what caused the fire that set off the explosion. Authorities say there are no signs of criminal intent.

Obama was already scheduled to be in Texas this week. He’ll headline a Democratic fundraiser in Dallas Wednesday night, and then attend a dedication ceremony for President George W. Bush’s library.
