Can’t catch a break | Huge fire breaks out at chemical plant in Louisiana

Residents of an area just west of Lake Charles, Louisiana have been ordered to shelter in place, close all windows and turn off air conditioning, due to a fire at a chemical plant in the wake of Hurricane Laura.

Governor John Bel Edwards himself tweeted at the residents of Westlake, Moss Bluff and Sulphur to “shelter in place, close your windows and doors and TURN OFF YOUR AIR CONDITIONING UNITS.”

‘There is a chemical fire,” he added. “Stay inside and wait for additional direction from local officials’.
