Stopping an internet rumor: This is not a photo of fertilizer plant explosion
There have been many internet rumors and viral photos since the explosion in West.
One concerns this photo, taken from a hill of a massive explosion. The photo went viral online this week, with people saying it was of the fatal fertilizer plant explosion that happened Wednesday in West, a town north of Waco.
The only problem? It's not a photo from West.
It's actually from a refinery explosion from Big Spring in 2008.
Another reminder to get the facts before your repost photos and rumors on your various social media profiles.
