Chemical clean up is finished at the Texas Recreation Corporation plant. A chemical fire started around 9 a.m. at the plant.
The Fire Marshal tells Newschannel 6 a mix of three different chemicals caught fire in a bag. That caused the fire alarms to go off, which led to the evacuation of the building.
Officials say a VAT container in one of their dip rooms was where the fire began.
Our crews on the scene say officers brought out employees belongings in plastic bags. Special crews from Fort Worth are coming in to clean up the chemicals.
The plant sustained minimal fire damage in the dip room.
