At Least It Wasn't A TNT Factory

If you were to make a list of things you'd rather not see get caught up in a raging fire, a bullet factory would probably be near the top.

Right under "WMD Central," "The Flammable-Gas U-Store-It" and "World's Largest Fireworks Store."

But a bullet factory in Pasadena did indeed go up in flames overnight.

We didn't even know Pasadena had a bullet factory. But if you're going to have a bullet factory in the greater Houston area, what better location than as near as possible to every refinery known to man?

No injuries were reported; there were some bullets going live, just like in the movies, but luckily no one was hit.

Damage was extensive, so it's unknown at this time whether Pasadena will still be home to a friggin' bullet factory near Refinery Row.
