  •  not proximate cause. (6+ / 0-)

    the explosion was a fire, so you have to look at their fire safety and wether they conformed to local rules.

    also, failing to report to DHS is only proximate if DHS does anything with this.  If it's purely a clerical requirement
    and DHS doesn't do safety inspections, it's a venial sin.

    I'd say given the regulatory free environment the issue
    depends upon a general duty to maintain a safe environment.
