WEST, Texas —
OBAMA TO ATTEND SERVICE FOR VICTIMS
The White House says President Barack Obama will attend a memorial service for victims of the fertilizer plant explosion. The service is scheduled for Thursday at Baylor University. Federal and state investigators are still trying to determine what caused the fire that set off the explosion. Authorities say there are no signs of criminal intent.
Obama was already scheduled to be in Texas this week. He’ll headline a Democratic fundraiser in Dallas on Wednesday night, and then attend a dedication ceremony for President George W. Bush’s library.
