“Thomas is about 90 minutes northwest of Oklahoma City.

The Danlin plant supplies chemicals to the oil industry and employs about 75 people in the town of about 1,200.

All employees had gone home before the blasts”

They are in the oilfield fracking & downhole chemical business. I have been to Thomas, but it was quite a while ago. At the time I am not sure this plant was there.

Domestic terrorists - that was my first thought. Seems to be a high number of plants blowing up/catching fire, etc. Just like the high number of forest fires.

Nah. This is likely just some accident - this kind of chemical plant is more prone to problems than just making cereal.
