Burning Texas Plant Was Just Fined for Mishandling ‘Explosive Chemicals’

Burning plant in Texas fined by feds before floodThe Crosby, Texas chemical plant burning in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey was cited with eight “serious” safety violations last year for failure to prevent the “catastrophic releases of toxic, reactive, flammable, or explosive chemicals.”
