Wow, a remark such as yours MmM is no surprise, especially coming out of some idiot from Albuquerque who cannot read. If you can not say anything intelligent, then just keep your trap shut. Ivey stated that the kids did everything right once the incident HAPPENED,and prevented any further damage, not that the kids were doing everything right to prevent this from happening.

hello, anti soical idiot person...its a festival you cant empty the out the grease everytime you make an order of what they were making...and for ur informartion..These kids were doing volunteer work to give out scholarship to other people...something you would not understand because of your so low education level...you or kids, siblings might of received a scholarship out of their hard work... its not easy to work, and for FREE to HELP other people, more than 12 hours under pressure and with a temperature of almos t 100 degrees outside..can u imagine how hot it was inside the booth...but anyways...i think you should eat back ur words...
i got a chance to meet These people...and it was a pleasure. We will keep you in our prayer. And i pray to God that everything comes outperfect with these teenagers...

How terrible! As a community let's all pull together to give our support to the families. These kids will need medical care and encouragement.

When fire and stone create friction, if it gets intense enough, lava results!
Turn away from disputes, especially where another is trying to impose a limit or some form of fear. Mr. Albuquerque it's a shame ther are alot of people like you that feel as if they can say just about anything, this is a time of fulfilling the consequences after the effect. Enjoy!

Those kids running the booth should have known to clean out something so simple as a grease tray. But I guess that's what happens when u leave a texan in charge.

I think these kids (at least the 13-year-old) are too young to be doing this type of volunteer work.
They should have been selling cokes or managing the cake walk.
The parents shouldn't have allowed them to help in that booth. But they may not have known.

It is the adults fault, we were kids once and we were just as naive with many things about life but as we rincle and gray hairs come out and we get old it is easy to call others stupid forgetting how young and naive we were once long ago. Instead of turning our tongues into a snake lets pray for these kids that need our prayer.

For one thing it's a tragedy. It's obvious that it lacked responsible adult supervision. These kids are young, an adult should have been keeping an eye on the whole thing. It should have been an adult that made sure grease traps were emptied. What I am wondering is why Ivey failed to inform the public about those who refused medical treatment or the 12 year old girl who recieved burns on more than 50 percent of her body. The media has failed to mention anything about her. I wonder what's to hide.

Well, just to let you all know, a lot of the information IS incorrect. Look for a change in the information and the story to come.

I was buying taquitos when the explotion occured. We, my husband and two children, were next to it, when the explotion happened. It was the scariest situation I have ever experienced. All the people were running scared. There were acutally two explotions. I couldn't sleep well thinking of the victims who were burned and I believe I can still hear one of the girls yelling in pain. Glory to God, because He protected my family. I pray in the name of Jesus the victims are ok. and they have no pain.

As Chux stated, information the public is recieving is incorrect. I keep waiting for the truth to come out. This little girl and her mother are friends of mine as well. This little girl is currently on life support, has burned lungs and burns over 50% of her body. She is the worst of all victims. The media reports very little on this accident. Maybe they should actually contact the paramedic to see that more were transported to the hospital than what is stated as well as the hospital to see how many victims they treated before airlifting that afternoon to Lubbock. I was there, where is the men who pulled children out before the fireman did, they are the heros. All the victims and thier families need our prayers.

my family had a booth next to them...and i believe my uncle and my dad and some other men helped them. now at a local newspaper are saying that the firemen were heroes...that they had everything under control...everything was sort of under control when they got there....
