West fertilizer explosion: The Eagle again (12/30) has an article on this subject. Reading this article plus others show (reading between the lines) that the cause of the explosion is not being reported. The cause of the explosion was because firefighters attempted to put the fire out. Fire fighting 101 says to let fertilizer fires burn themselves out. Any attempt to put them out, like spraying water on them, causes the internal temperature to build up to explosive levels. (An easy lesson to forget, since fertilizer fires are so rare and since sometimes with small fires and enough water you can actually put them out, at great risk, with water.)
All articles that I have read report how investigators are attempting to determine how the fire started not why it exploded. I suspect the reason it is not being reported is because our government's monopoly on fighting fires also means it controls what is being reported -- it controls what info the media receives.
