Natural gas storage facility explodes in Texas
An explosion was reported at the Lone Star NGL's natural gas facility at Mont Belvieu, Texas, according to a local media report on Wednesday.
The explosion took place at about 4:45 p.m. on West Winfree Street, which is about 30 miles (48 km) east of Houston and the Mont Belvieu Fire Department was working with other first responders at the scene, the report said.
No injuries were reported. All facility workers had been accounted for, said Mont Belvieu city spokesman Brian Ligon.
The fire significantly dwindled by 8 p.m. and officials said they expected the fire to burn itself out overnight, according to a Facebook post from the city.
“MBFD and industrial units are continuing with suppression operations while the line bleeds out,” the city said. “We are very thankful that no plant employees or responders were injured during this incident or during the response.”
