    Multiple injuries in explosion, fire at Louisiana chemical plant, official says

    A Geismar, Louisiana, chemical plant exploded and caught fire Thursday, causing multiple injuries and forcing authorities to evacuate the area around the facility, officials told CNN.

    Authorities ordered residents within a two-mile radius of the plant to stay inside while crews battled the fire, Ascension Parish spokesman Lester Kenyon said. A Louisiana State Police dispatcher had previously told CNN the area around the plant was being evacuated.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
