DUSON, La. (AP / KATC) – A fire broke out at a chemical plant in Duson, Louisiana, sending massive smoke plumes in the air and prompting an evacuation for a mile all around.

Louisiana State Police have said that no injuries have been reported from the fire at FlowChem Technologies, which provides products and services to the oil and gas industry. 

The Acadia Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness said that the fire started after xylene and flammable containers exploded.

Crews are currently working to remove all xylene and other dangerous chemicals around the site.

The Department of Environmental Quality is monitoring the air quality near the plant before allowing people to return home. There is no word on when the evacuation order will be lifted.

Police said Interstate 10 was closed for a stretch between Lafayette and Crowley as a precaution. Traffic was diverted to LA 13.

Authorities said those evacuating around the plant were asked to go to a local fire department until further notice.

FlowChem maintains two chemical blending facilities, one in Duson and one in Texas.
