No injuries from Clint chemical plant fire causing heavy smoke

CLINT, Texas -- Firefighters battled a blaze at a chemical factory late Monday afternoon in the Clint area of El Paso County.

The fire broke out at TR Chemicals at 700 Celum Road, the entrance to which was blocked off by sheriff's deputies. Thick, black smoke from the fire was highly visible near San Elizario Road and North Loop.

Homeowners living nearby the plant said they heard a loud boom that sounded like an explosion as the flames erupted. Fire crews indicated it appeared a semi-truck at the factory caught fire.

There were no reports of any injuries from the blaze, which was eventually contained by firefighters.

The El Paso County Fire Marshal was investigating what ignited that fire.
