We have a lot of grain elevators locally and it seems we have an explosion every 5 years or so. It is amazing how explosive the grain dust is.

believe they said it was full of soybeans. one of the firefighters that was injured they said was from Weatherford which is a fair sized town, but the one that was killed and the other 4 injured were all from Hydro which is a pretty small place, probably were volunteer firemen, rough on a small town like that where everyone knows everyone.

The news in OKC said that the one killed was the fire chief. Some of the others were airlifted to hospitals.
