WEST TEXAS - Medical Examiners are working to identify the 12 people whose bodies have been found after an explosion at the west, Texas Fertilizer Plant.
The victims are believed to include a small group of firefighters and other first-responders who had headed toward the plant to fight a fire that apparently touched off the explosion.
The powerful blast Wednesday night killed an unconfirmed number of people, injured many more and leveled buildings for blocks around the blast site.
