      Texas fertilizer explosion EMS worker charged with owning explosive device

      A first responder who helped treat victims of the fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas, last month was arrested and charged today with possessing an explosive device.

      The arrest came on the same day that Texas authorities opened a criminal investigation into the April 17 explosion.

      Paramedic Bryce Reed, who works with the West, Texas, EMS and served as incident commander during the response to the explosion, appeared in federal court in Waco, Texas, this morning for alleged possession of a destructive device.
