A chemical fire at a KMCO chemical plant in Crosby, TX has killed one person and critically injured two others.  The fire occurred April 2, 2019.  On March 17, 2019 there was another fire at a chemical storage facility operated by Intercontinental Terminals Company in Deer Park, TX.  The Deer Park fire burned for several days and resulted in air quality warnings being issued.

In 2017 there was an explosion and fire at another facility in Crosby as a result of the impact of Hurricane Harvey.

Do a news search for “Texas chemical fire” and you might be amazed at the number and severity of incidents.  This is just a hunch on my part, but it seems that someone in Texas is more likely to be killed or injured by a chemical plant incident than by someone who crossed the southern border.  Let’s hear it for poor regulations with lax enforcement!
