Media reports said the children at an elementary school near the facility had been withdrawn on school buses after the first are advised to shelter in place, and that a neighboring community college was also evacuated.
A company official of the environment could not say what caused the fire in the town south of Dallas.
“All we know right now is the building where the fire started appears to be a total loss,” said the installation’s environmental health and safety director Donald Golden CNN, saying the rescuers were still trying to put fire.
“All our employees and anyone who was visiting the plant when the fire started has been evacuated and accounted for. So that was obviously our first concern. Everyone is out and safe.”
News reports said hot liquid spilled on the floor and a fire truck in the plant, causing its explosion. The truck appeared to be empty and no injuries were reported.
Hell would also spreading rapidly in a rail yard next to the plant.
A local CBS affiliate, said the resort is located just off a major highway that had to be closed by smoke and fire, and firefighters from several nearby villages had enlisted to fight the flames.
