Crater being examined in West, Texas explosion

A crowd packed a church in the town of West, Texas to remember a fire captain killed in the fertilizer plant explosion.

They honored the life of Dallas firefighter, Captain Kenny Harris, Junior.

Harris was off duty last Wednesday night, but offered his assistance as a volunteer firefighter.

The 52 year-old was one of ten firefighters killed in the blast.

Meanwhile, officials continue to sift through a 90-foot-wide crater caused by last week's deadly explosion to figure out what happened.

The explosion killed at least 14 people and injured hundreds more.

Dozens of buildings were damaged.

At least two lawsuits have been filed against Adair Grain Incorporated, which operated the plant.
