Update: West fertilizer explosion near Waco

West explosion UPDATE report from KWTX:

WEST (April 18, 2013)-Rescuers planned to launch another door-to-door search overnight in areas damaged by a massive fertilizer plant explosion in West that left more than 100 injured and may have killed dozens.

West EMS Director Dr. George Smith said earlier Wednesday night as many as 60 or 70 people died in the blast, but Department of Public Safety spokesman D.L. Wilson said during a news conference late Wednesday night the number of dead is unknown.

“We do have confirmed fatalities,” Wilson said. “It’s going to be a number.”

Williams said the blast caused “a tremendous amount of injuries,” and estimated the number hurt at more than 100.

The blast ripped a 50-unit apartment building apart, leaving little more than a skeleton, Wilson said.

Reports earlier Wednesday night indicated that some residents of the building were trapped including two children, but additional information wasn’t immediately available.

A nearby nursing home was also damaged and the 133 residents were evacuated, he said.

Some were injured, but he didn’t have a count.
