Texas firefighters attend plant explosion memorial

WACO, Texas (AP) - Firefighters and first responders from all over Texas are gathering in Waco to honor those who died in last week's fertilizer plant explosion in West.

A parade of fire trucks and other first responders' vehicles passed through Waco Thursday before a memorial service for first responders.

Brian Crawford, the fire chief in the Dallas suburb of Plano, accompanied 11 other firefighters from his department. He said he wanted to show "we are all a family."

At least 14 people died in the April 17 explosion at West Fertilizer, including 10 first responders.

Thousands of people were expected to attend the memorial service at the Ferrell Center in Waco, about 90 miles south of Dallas.
