3 Injured at Port Neches Explosion

3 people have been reported injured in connection to a massive explosion at a chemical plant in Port Neches, Texas.

 

An early morning explosion rocked the TPC Group plant about 80-miles east of Houston, Texas.  The blast emitted a plume of smoke that stretched for miles and the fire continued to burn Wednesday morning.  A mandatory evacuation was given to everyone within a half-mile of the plant, with the potential for expansion.

 

All employees have been accounted for, 3 have been listed as injured.  Injuries include burns and broken bones.
