NEW YORK (Reuters) – A fire that broke out on Wednesday at an INEOS phenol plant in Pasadena, Texas, injured one person, but has since been extinguished, a city official said.

There is no danger to the community from the fire, and officials have not issued a shelter in place, said Laura Mireles with the City of Pasadena.

Pasadena officials are at the scene.

A truck backed into a loading dock at the plant and it caught fire, Mireles said. The truck’s driver was then transported to the hospital.
