Chemical truck explodes in Western Odessa

ODESSA, Texas (Nexstar) – According to Odessa Fire Battalion Chief Bradley Reese, around 10:00 p.m. Sunday, the Odessa Fire Brigade responded to an explosion in section 900 of W 26order Street. OFR said a truck full of chemicals exploded and they are still trying to figure out exactly what happened.

“When units arrived on the scene, they found a fully involved flatbed (truck) and we later discovered it was carrying various chemicals in several large bins,” Reese said.

Reese said the chemical in the trash is used in the smelting process and its disposal is nothing new, but an explosion in a residential area made the situation unique.

“In this case, they kept too many different things in one place. The chemicals are all in different states, there’s some solids and some liquids and it’s mixed up is something that could have happened,” says Reece.

Neighbors in the area said they saw the explosion and were glad no one was injured in the fire.

“This happened in the middle of a neighborhood, so there were a lot of homes nearby, there was a bit of concern about what the chemicals were and the smoke was in the area, but the teams went to the scene, cleared the area and In Two hours the area was cleared. “

OFR is still working to determine the cause of the fire. We will have more on this story at 6:00 pm
