Media Briefing

Trooper D.L. Wilson, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, said at a separate conference that at least 100 were injured and that as many as 75 homes had been destroyed. The main fire was under control as of 11 p.m., Wilson said, urging residents to remain indoors because of the threat of new explosions or leaks of ammonia from the plant’s ruins.
