A Fracking Factory Fire in Waxahachie, TX ?? *Update*

Who Knew?? Waxahachie officials say they didn't know.  It's more than a sure thing that TCEQ and Texas Railroad Commissioners didn't know about this fracking operation, either.   

Is this different than a meth lab??  We're just asking...because no one seems to know what they were doing. It's clearly all very DANGEROUS and, in FACT, it did BLOW UP!

So, now, WE the People, know.  Thank you, Brett Shipp.

*Update* ~ And, to be completely accurate, TXSharon discussed it first.   Here Keeping up with her blog is usually everyone's best bet for this kind of information. We understand that TXSharon's work with the Earthworks' Oil and Gas Accountability Project keeps her very busy these days...but BlueDaze is still the place to go for the latest news about drilling and fracking on the planet. As so often happens in MediaLand, the TV media may appear to be the "first to know."  Thankfully, unlike fracking chemicals, it all comes out in the wash.

"Waxahachie Fire-Rescue Chief David Hudgins told News 8 he was not aware that 80 percent of what Magnablend produces is fracking chemicals.

EPA officials said they had no idea what Magnablend was producing at the plant.

While it's legal to blend fracking chemicals, federal law states if enough dangerous chemicals are being stored on site, then the company must file a risk management plan.

No such plan [risk management plan] has been filed for this facility.

Local, state and federal authorities continue their investigation."
HELP. Please.
