BREAKING: Fire Breaks Out Again at Texas Chemical Facility

The fire at the ITC tank facility in Deer Park, Texas, has reignited, sending black smoke once again into the air.

The Intercontinental Terminal Company had issued a shelter-in-place for those around the area earlier in the day after a dike wall that contained product partially collapsed due to the earlier fire. This comes just hours after they also announced that they had begun emptying two million gallons of chemical from one of the damaged tanks. 

The Houston Ship Channel also announced a partial closure due to pollution from the incident.
