On Wednesday, April 17th of 2013, 30 Tons of fertalizer-grade ammonium nitrate exploded at the West Fertilizer Plant, killing 15 people. We lost 12 first responders that day, and the explosion injured hundreds more nearby.

The explosion that day was the equivalent of a 2.1 magnitude earthquake. Fast-forward to May of 2016, when the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms presented their findings that the fire that caused the explosion was deliberately set.

It's been 4 years since the explosion, and today there is some fantastic news for the people and children of West, Texas. We got that information directly from Matthew Pearson with the law office of Gravely & Pearson in the video above.
