Description:

A crude oil tank exploded and burned at a biodiesel plant on the waterfront docks in Galveston, Texas, rattling the island city. City spokeswoman Alicia Cahill says a worker was treated for smoke inhalation, but no other injuries were reported. Cahill says one tank burned after the 7:30 p.m. Thursday explosion, but firefighters worked to keep neighboring tanks cool. A shelter-in-place order for nearby Texas A&M University at Galveston was lifted after two hours, and the nearby traffic arteries and bridge to Pelican Island were opened by midnight. Fire companies from Texas City and La Marque came from mainland Texas to join their Galveston counterparts in fighting the fire on the city's northern waterfront.
