Texas Plant Blast Probe Findings Inconclusive

Investigations into a deadly blast at a Texas fertiliser plant have failed to identify a cause.

State Fire Marshal Chris Connealy said officials were still classifying the cause of the fire that sparked the deadly explosion as undetermined - but have not ruled out criminal activity.

The April 17 blast killed 15 people, injured 200 and levelled part of the town of West, which has a population of around 2,800.
