Williams Kherkher Provides Resource Center after Deer Park Plant Fire

Houston Personal Injury Law Firm Makes Informational Center Available to People Affected by Plastics Plant Fire

Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 19, 2008 -- Houston personal injury law firm Williams Kherkher has set up an informational resource center for people affected by the recent fire at a plastics manufacturing plant in Deer Park.

At approximately 7:15 AM Tuesday morning, a fire broke out in a furnace at the Oxy Vinyl plant just north of Texas Highway 225. Although the flames were quickly contained by automated shutoff valves, a significant amount of black smoke was visible over the area.

Concerned about the possible spread of hazardous or toxic chemicals, officials at the plant ordered a shelter-in-place for north Deer Park. The order was lifted shortly afterward, once officials determined that the presence of toxic substances was unlikely.

The Oxy Vinyl plant is located within the Shell complex along Tidal Road; it produces vinyl chloride monomers, used in manufacturing resin for many plastic products. According to officials, the plant will be shut down while they investigate the cause of the fire.

For more information on the ongoing investigation, visit Williams Kherkher's online resource center.
