New Fire Breaks Out at Deer Park Chemical Plant

A new fire broke out at the Intercontinental Terminals Company (ITC) chemical plant in Deer Park, Texas, on March 22, sending a dark plume of smoke into the sky, local media reported.

The Deer Park Office of Emergency Management issued a statement saying it was monitoring the “flare-up.”

The blaze started just two days after a fire that burned at the plant for three days was extinguished on March 20. The United States Chemical Safety Board said on March 21 that it would investigate that fire. Credit: JJ Gómez via Storyful
