City of West to honor explosion victims

Local

It has been almost six years since the deadly West plant explosion killed 15 and injured more than 200 people. 

The community plans to come together to honor those who died this weekend. Fallen Heroes Memorial Park will be unveiled this Saturday at 10:00 a.m. 

The park is located on Still Meadow Drive across from the city park. In the event of rain, the ceremony will be moved to the West High School Auditorium.

The new park sits about 100 yards from where the explosion happened.
