CORPUS CHRISTI - One Corpus Christi firefighter spent the past few days helping with the recovery efforts in West, Texas. Kelly Maiden traveled up to west just hours after the explosion Wednesday. He's part of Texas Task Force One, a state-sponsored search-and-rescue team made up of volunteers all over the state. Maiden helped search for victims buried in all the rubble. He says after everything he saw up there he doesn't take anything for granted.
"You get home, you kiss your wife you kiss your kids," Maiden said, "call everybody and tell them you love them and then hope that you never have to go through something like that."
Maiden says luckily he and his team didn't find anyone dead or injured after searching through their assigned area.
