DEER PARK – A fire has reignited at the Shell Deer Park Chemical Plant, several hours after it was extinguished.

According to the Deer Park Office of Emergency Management, the fire has rekindled and firefighters are currently back putting it out

Shell released a statement confirming the rekindling.

“Response crews are currently responding to a fire on site, which was a result of remaining product on-site reigniting. Channel Industries Mutual Aid was called in an abundance of caution, and employees and contractors are accounted for with no injuries reported. Air monitoring is ongoing and has not detected harmful levels of chemicals. There is no danger to the nearby community, however residents and neighbors will notice black smoke, flaring and a potential for increased noise from the facility.”
