It most likely was an accident. Fertilizer and fire don't mix well. Thoughts and payers to all involved.

Looks like that plant had been on fire for a while. Did they evacuate the area around the plant?

Wasn't the Waco Cult thing on April 20th?


I think the Waco thing was at the end of Feb and the Oklahoma City bombing and Columbine were both around this date.
