HOUSTON — A shelter-in-place was issued for some southeast Houston residents Monday afternoon after a fire broke out at the LyondellBasell plant.
Officials said all residents near the plant, located at Highway 225 near Lawndale, should shelter in place until Haz-Mat crews determine what, if any, fumes were being released in the blaze.
It was unclear how long that would take.
Huge plumes of black smoke could be seen billowing from the scene as large, orange flames rose above the plant.
It was not clear what sparked the fire.

This is highly peculiar.
Are Eco-terrorists attacking oil production to get us off of our oil dependence? This is so bizarre.

Here is a thought:
What if this is going back to the President Barak Obama and Al Gore, and those who wants cap and trade?
During the election, then canidate Obama made a statement about nudging the population of the country off of petrolium products and moving to a green economy. Now if you loose a refinery here, a production place there, yes the price of Gas is going to go up. And as the president is demanding, tougher safety, that means that there will be interruptions of fuel. Thus raising the price for a gallon of gas as supply will be on the decline. Sounds kind of plausable to me.
