Waxahachie, Texas — A massive fire was burning Monday morning at a chemical plant in Waxahachie, located about 30 miles south of Dallas.
Firefighters were on the scene at the 1600 block of state Highway 287 at the Magnablend chemical company, which manufactures custom chemicals for a variety of industries, including oil fields, agriculture, pet food and feed supplements, water treatment, construction and industrial cleaning.
Officials have not yet said what chemicals may be burning at the facility, according to the KXAS, the NBC affiliate in Dallas.
The fire was very intense and moving beyond the property and into an adjacent field toward the Ellis County campus of Navarro College, according to KXAS. A fire truck in the parking lot managed to keep the fire from spreading to the building. The college was evacuated immediately after the fire broke out.
