Explosion rips through Texas plant

  • The devastating effects of a fertilizer heap catching fire have been known for 60+ years (Texas City 1947 etc).

    Firefighters should have known better than a layman like me to steer clear and not attempt putting out this fire. I heard on bbc news that there are about 60 to 70 lives lost and scores of injured. Why people don't learn from the past?
