I've had an account here for a while but I've never posted. Not CFD but recently got my FF2, I live about 2 miles west of this factory. Explosion shook my whole house pretty violently, roommates and I were checking outside because we thought something happened right outside our door. Thought I'd give a rundown as best I can. These units all responded but I'm not sure on which alarm, and order of arrival is my estimate. Units still rotating in for relief as well. Missing individual was unfortunately found deceased under some rubble around 9:16 AM per Columbus Fire's Facebook.
