The West Texas fertilizer plant explosion is now under criminal investigation.

Fourteen people were killed last month when the facility caught fire and exploded. The state Fire Marshal's office said it has ruled out four possible causes.

The explosion registered as a magnitude 2.1 earthquake and could be felt 50 miles away.

Investigators have interviewed more than 400 people trying to figure out exactly where the fire started and its cause.
