Has anyone caught the video of the massive fire in Houston this morning?

Wow! Hope everyone is ok and thank you to those firefighters who are battling the fire! Also, a shout out the firefighters in Alberta and all the others who put themselves on that line to protect us all.

Close to 200 firefighters in response; indications that "chemicals in a large capacity" in may be burning, according to Houston Fire Department spokesman Rick Flanagan; multiple explosions could be seen inside the warehouse, according to KRPC, many of which are believed to be caused by stores of ammunition caught in the fire; residents are being urged to stay inside, close all windows and doors and turn off air conditioning systems (due to filtration, I'd guess).

Surrounded by Pasadena, South Houston, and Texas City.

If it wasn't one, it was the other.
