The city of Spring Branch, Texas, located northwest of Houston experienced a four-alarm fire at a warehouse complex this morning, sending billowing flames and plumes of black smoke into the sky.
The blaze initially began in a nearby home before spreading to the warehouse, which is used by a custom packaging company. Nearly 200 local firefighters have been deployed to fight the inferno.
Residents have reported that explosions of canisters of hazardous materials shook the foundations of their homes. To make matters more dire, the warehouse complex in flames is located near several schools, including Spring Ranch Elementary, which was evacuated.
