Chemical Plant Fire
A federal agency investigating the deadly April explosion at the fertilizer plant in West told a Senate committee Thursday that regulation of the dangerous chemicals used in the industry fall under a “patchwork” of standards.
It has been three days since a spectacular explosion and fire at a chemical plant in Garland, and investigators are not any closer to determining what sparked the blast.
An explosion and subsequent massive fire at a chemical plant in Garland sent workers scrambling and businesses nearby into a panic.
A proposal to relocate a Magnablend Chemical Plant has some Ellis County residents saying, “not in my backyard.” Monday dozens of affected residents are expected to gather at the Ellis County Commissioner’s meeting to voice their concerns.
Newly released records show last year, Magnablend stored 22 chemicals at its central plant that burned to the ground Monday.
