      Why are so many fertilizer plants suddenly catching fire and burning down to the ground? There have been at least 4 other fires in the U.S. in the last several months. You’d think someone was trying to hurt the farmers and prevent them from being able to grow crops…nahhhh just conspiracy ain’t it?
