J.B.'s Journal: New London

Posted: Updated:

EAST TEXAS (KYTX) -- On March 18, New London will remember the 75th anniversary of the explosion that killed almost 300 students and teachers.

The school blew up after a stray spark from an electric sander ignited natural gas that had seeped under the school.

Sheriff J.B. Smith shares some of the personal memories from that day.
