Investigators Indicate the Fire Which Preceded the Ammonium Nitrate Explosion in West, TX Was "A Criminal Act"

Richard Rosera

Federal and state investigators said no arrests have been made, but that they are investigating who was responsible for causing the fire at the West Fertilizer Co. facility in the town of West on April 17, 2013. Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives special agent Robert Elder said investigators came to the conclusion after ruling out other reasonable causes, but he didn’t release specifics or a possible motive.
