Waller County chemical plant explosion leads to 12-alarm fire

Posted on Sunday, July 5th, 2015 at 9:27 am by Williams Hart   |  Updated: Tuesday, August 27th, 2019 at 1:17 pm    

According to the Waller County Sheriff’s Office, an explosion last night at Flowchem, a chemical plant that uses synthetic rubber to make a pipeline additive, caused a massive, 12-alarm fire that involved the entire plant. Multiple area fire departments responded to the fire, and residents living within two miles of the plant were asked to shelter in place. This request was lifted around 2 am. Thankfully, there are no reported injuries at this time, as there were no workers inside the plant at the time of the explosion. The Harris County Fire Marshall plans to visit the site this morning in an attempt to determine what caused the fire.
