HARRIS COUNTY, TX — Four workers were injured early Thursday morning when a fire broke out at the ExxonMobil Baytown Olefins Plant in Baytown, according to KHOU11.

The incident occurred on 3525 Decker Drive, along Texas Highway 330, at around 1:00 a.m.

Few details have been released at this time, but three  of the four victims were airlifted to a nearby hospital, while the fourth was transported via ground ambulance. No information has been disclosed on the severity of their injuries, but they were said to be in stable condition.
