Let me guess: They're trying to restart a refinery there?

Dangerous business, doing that.

[Edit] Nope. Plastics plant. Lotsa volatile petroleum distillates, though.

a HDPE unit is just like making popcorn.
you need corn and oil and heat.
the hot poped corn falls down into a big hopper.

NO terrorists were harmed in the exploding of this plant, heh

Eye witness on the 9pm news stated that the explosion was triggered when a forklift punctured a vessle containing flamable chemicals. Still burning like hell. Locals advised to shelter in place.

hard to imagine the day when every accident wasn't assumed to be caused by terrorists

You could not pay me to work in one of those plants.
