Residents and officials in West, Texas, say the small farming town will never be the same, after a huge explosion at a fertilizer plant there last night.
Sgt. Patrick Swanton of the nearby Waco Police Department told reporters Thursday morning that one missing firefighter has been found, but several others are still missing, and anywhere from 5 to 15 people have been killed.
The blast injured more than 160 others.
There were 50 to 75 homes either leveled or damaged, along with a 50-unit apartment complex and numerous businesses.
The fire at the Adair Grain fertilizer factory is now under control.
