"Oklahoma Chemical Plant Explosions Force Evacuations; No Injuries"

"Fire consumed a chemical plant west of Oklahoma City overnight Thursday, forcing evacuations but causing no injuries and leaving surrounding areas unscathed, officials said."

"The fire and explosions at Danlin Industries in Thomas, Okla., about 85 miles west of the capital, according to Michael Galloway, Custer County emergency management director.

Gallloway told The Times that the fire started about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday on the west side of the building, although it was unclear what caused the blaze.

About 75 people work at the plant, but the last workers had left at 7:30 p.m., locking the gate, Galloway said."
