WEST, Texas (AP) — Officials are telling residents displaced by the massive fertilizer plant explosion in Texas that tanks on site are leaking gas and causing small fires.
They say the fires are contained, but they are preventing those who live nearby from returning to their homes in the town of West.
Paramedic Bryce Reed visited a hotel crammed with displaced residents on Saturday and gave a short briefing.
Reed, who is also a spokesman for West, said there may be reports of "another explosion in West," but warned that those are exaggerated.
He said the leaks were caused by tanks damaged by heat and had triggered small fires. He said no further evacuations were necessary.
