No injuries in fire at Oklahoma chemical plant

THOMAS, Okla. (AP) - No injuries were reported after a massive fire broke out at a rural Oklahoma chemical plant.

Authorities say several explosions followed the fire late Wednesday at the Danlin Industries plant near Thomas. The plant produces chemicals for the oil and gas industry.

A Danlin official tells Oklahoma City television station KWTV that no one was at the plant when the fire broke out Wednesday night. Fire crews say the blaze is contained and they're letting it burn itself out.

Residents who lived near the plant were told to evacuate in the overnight hours, but authorities say they should be able to return home later Thursday morning.

The plant is located about 90 miles west of Oklahoma City.
