Hell no to Fire Marshal Inspections in Texas


In the months since the fertilizer plant blast that killed 15 and injured 200 in West, Texas, in April, the state has been trying to check for fire hazards at similar facilities. But five facilities storing 10,000 pounds or more of ammonium nitrate, the same dangerous fertilizer chemical that made the West explosion so deadly, have turned fire marshals away. And that's just fine, under Texas state law.

Apparently it is easier for the U.N. to inspect alleged Sarin gas attacks in Syria than for Fire Marshals to inspect potentially explosive warehouses in Texas.
