HOUSTON — A paramedic who responded to the fertilizer-plant fire in West, Texas, and was arrested last week has denied any connection between the fire and the charges he faces.
Bryce Reed, 31, released a statement through his attorney Saturday saying he “vigorously denies” charges filed against him Friday. He is accused of passing bomb-making materials to a resident in nearby Abbott, Texas, where they were discovered Tuesday, according to a criminal complaint filed by Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives officials who arrested him.
Reed did not enter a plea Friday but said Saturday he planned to plead not guilty.
The investigation into what caused the April 17 fire and explosion, which killed 14 people, continues.
