WEST, Texas (AP) - People near the site of a deadly fertilizer plant explosion in Central Texas have been advised that smoke could be generated as part of the investigation.
Officials in West say heavy equipment will be used on Tuesday to remove debris and grain and that could lead to smoke - but residents shouldn't be alarmed.
Authorities said it's part of the process to determine what caused the fiery April 17 blast that killed 14 people. Another 200 people were hurt in the explosion that damaged or destroyed dozens of buildings in West, located about 70 miles south of Fort Worth.
West Mayor Tommy Muska said Tuesday that town officials await responses on requests for state and federal funding as part of recovery efforts.
A boil water notice remains in effect.
