Map of West, Texas Fertilizer Plant and Surroundings

This graphic is from DFW’s WFAA, a map showing the close proximity of the plant in relation to the schools, the nursing home, and residential homes.

More than 150 residents have been taken to three different hospitals. According to reports, 10-15 homes have been demolished, while 50 have been heavily damaged. Flames have taken down the town’s nursing home and a 50 unit apartment complex. Because the burning material and fumes are considered toxic and hazardous, firefighters cannot yet tame the smoldering still going on at the facility here at the fourth hour.

WFAA has more coverage here.

City law enforcement officials plan to go door-to-door in the town with a population of approximately 2,800.
