An explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas has destroyed the building and caused numerous injuries.

A triage area was set up on the nearby high school football field.

Authorities have since moved the triage scene further away from the blast site because of concern there could be additional danger.

Firefighters were at the fertilizer plant on a fire call when the explosion occurred.

It's too early to know just how many people are injured or if there are any fatalities.
