Search continues for missing Cresson Chemical Plant worker

Texas chemical plant is currently on fire

Inside the plant water or solids are blended with highly concentrated chemicals.

Dylan Mitchell's phone still rings a day after the blasts, giving her hope that he is alive, but she hasn't heard from authorities searching the plant.

The search resumed Friday for the third worker who Gillum has said is presumed dead.

He says they searched the front half of the building on Thursday and Friday and haven't found the missing worker, who is presumed dead.

The flames have subsided at the site except for some hot spots, and the highway on which the plant is situated has reopened. Another man received minor burns and was taken to a hospital in Granbury, Texas, Cornett said.

Insane game means pizza craze as Little Caesars offers up free grub
The lunch combo comes with four slices of pizza that adds up to about the size of a normal personal pizza and a 20 ounce drink. Little Caesars promised fans a free lunch if any No. 16 teams beat a No. 1 team on Thursday or Friday- and UMBC did just that.

A North Texas man and his family fear the worst after an explosion destroyed the chemical plant where he worked Thursday morning.

"We look like a bunch of fire ants all over that place", mayor Cornett said. He is said to have caught fire from the waist up and has been airlifted to hospital with critical burns.

Another worker was treated for lesser injuries.

An official says an explosion at a rural Texas chemical plant injured two workers and that a third is missing, and that fire crews are being kept away from the blaze because of toxic fumes and fear of another explosion.

Officials say the search for a missing worker following an explosion at a Texas chemical plant has been halted while crews clean up chemicals that are leaching from the plant.

What's brewing between BJP & Jagan, asks Naidu
The tensions between the two parties have been brewing over non-issuance of the special category status to the state. As of now, the ball is in the court of Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on whether she admits the motion or not.

Cornett told The Associated Press that Tri-Chem Industries mixes chemicals that are primarily used by the oil and gas industry to drill disposal wells.

In recent years, Texas leaders have made it increasingly hard for the public to find out about the chemicals manufactured and stored at such plants.

Cornett said Tri-Chem Industries mixes chemicals that are primarily used by the oil and gas industry to drill disposal wells, and that although he didn't know how numerous chemicals at the plant were hazardous, "what was burnt and exploded was quite toxic".

Investigators from several agencies including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are beginning an investigation of the cause of the Tri-Chem explosions. Five years ago, a blast at West Fertilizer Co, in West, Texas killed 15 people, including plant workers and first responders.
