As the death toll from China's blasts in Tianjin rises to at least 85, 29 additional bodies have been recovered in the northern Chinese city.

This is it the deadliest incident for firefighters in the history of the People's Republic of China. A total of 721 people were injured, of whom 25 remain in a critical condition. Dozens of people are still believed to be missing.

As the Chinese government continues to control news coverage, the question which begas to be asked is why and what caused these massive explosions?
