Mont Belvieu and Chambers County emergency personnel have responded to an explosion and large fire at Enterprise Products oil and gas facility today near Mont Belvieu, a small city 35 miles east of Houston. Flames were shooting about 100 feet into the air and black smoke could be seen all the way from downtown Houston. A nearby school district, Barbers Hill is keeping the children inside the schools until the fire is contained. Houston-based Enterprise is one of America’s largest shippers and processors of natural gas including approximately 49,000 miles of onshore and offshore pipelines. The story is currently still developing.
