Texas plant explosion sends dozens to hospitals
Emergency Management Alert, August 4, 2009
An explosion in a Bryan, TX chemical plant forced thousands of people to evacuate from their homes, reports the Herald Democrat. Thirty-four people were treated and released from area hospitals, most for smoke inhalation or eye irritation.
The El Dorado Chemical Co. plant mixes fertilizer and other chemicals used to make explosives. Investigation continues, reports the Herald, but so far points to a welding job that may have sparked a fire.
