Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding the West investigation results:
“The tragedy in West has dramatically changed the lives of many in this tight-knit community, forever leaving its mark on the town and in the hearts of those who call West home. While the cause of the fire remains undetermined and the investigation continues, this tragedy has shown the world the definition of compassion, from volunteer firefighters across the state rushing to help their colleagues at the scene, to friends, neighbors and Texans stepping in to help those who lost so much in the blast. I send my continued appreciation to every state and federal agency involved, including the Texas State Fire Marshal’s Office; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives National Response Team; and the Texas Department of Insurance.”
