TEXAS PLANT BLAST-INTRO

TEXAS GOVERNOR RICK PERRY IS CALLING THE EXPLOSION AT A FERTILIZER PLANT IN THE TOWN OF WEST, TEXAS A "NIGHTMARE SCENARIO".

THE PLANT CAUGHT FIRE WEDNESDAY NIGHT THEN SUDDENLY EXPLODED, LEVELING BLOCK AFTER BLOCK. PRELIMINARY ESTIMATES ARE TEN TO FIFTEEN PEOPLE WERE KILLED... BUT THAT NUMBER COULD GO HIGHER AS RESCUE CREWS SEARCH THE RUBBLE OF NEARBY HOMES AND BUSINESSES. MORE THAN 160 PEOPLE WERE INJURED.

CHRIS SADEGHI HAS THE LATEST FROM WEST, TEXAS.
