A small fire Wednesday at a fertilizer plant in the tiny central Texas town of West... turned into a horrific inferno after an explosion...that killed 14..and injured at least 200...safety officials reported.
The Czech Republic sent an official to the small town...because West is heavily populated with Americans of Czech ancestry.
It blew a hole 93 feet in diameter...and 10 feet deep.
Rescuers continue searching thru the rubble of a nearby nursing home, a school, a 50-unit apartment complex...and dozens of homes.
Much of the town was evacuated.
