The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is monitoring air in West, Texas, where a fertilizer plant exploded, according to an Associated Press report.

The plant exploded Wednesday night.  TCEQ personnel are near the scene keeping track of air quality per requests from emergency responders.

Reports presume that anhydrous ammonium stored in the plant may have exploded due to a large fire in the plant.

According to the TECQ air quality index, Thursday’s pollution levels in Waco near West are all within acceptable levels.
