WEST, TX – Kids are going back to school, and some residents are getting back into their homes. Still, West, Texas looks like a war zone.

Investigators have found where the blast originated, but they still don’t know the cause. While that’s being looked into, one thing that has been uncovered, is troubling. West Fertilizer reportedly stored more than 1300 times the amount of ammonium nitrate, that normally raises red flags. Someone at the company might have some explaining to do.

The small town has been shaken to its core. Ten first responders are among the confirmed dead. As their names start to come out, we learn that two of them – are brothers.

This weekend, folks brought their grief and faith to a church untouched by the blast. Now the prayers are for a healing touch on this close-knit small town.
