Poor oversight cited in Texas plant blast mirrored in Az

This includes Arizona’s largest ammonium nitrate facility, Apache Nitrogen, southeast of Tucson in St. David. It houses more than 80 million pounds of the chemical but didn’t disclose, as is required, its list of hazardous materials to local firefighters.
