A fire at Sound Resource Solutions—a rural chemical distribution plant in Shepherd, Texas—was contained by 1 p.m. CST, a county emergency services official said on Wednesday.

The fire was triggered by an explosion on Wednesday morning and prompted the evacuation of a private school nearby. Officials issued a five-mile shelter-in-place warning.

Eyewitness video footage taken in a backyard shows massive clouds of dark smoke billowing from the plant.
