Posted:

Take a look at the massive crater left behind in West, Texas.

After last week's deadly explosion at a fertilizer plant.

The crater is nearly a hundred feet wide and ten feet deep.

You can see the area around the blast site has been devastated.

The explosion and fire killed at least 14 people and injured hundreds of others.

Investigators are still trying to determine how and why it happened but have ruled out natural causes.

The West Fertilizer Company says it is focusing on fact finding and not on any pending lawsuits.
