GARLAND, Texas —

All workers are accounted for and safe after a chemical plant near Dallas erupted in flames.

The fire started at the Nexeo Solutions plant in Garland about 3:30 p.m. Friday. Nexeo spokeswoman Christina Reynolds says all 41 workers who were at the plant then are safe.

Fire Capt. Merrill Balanciere says it's still unclear what caused the fire, but the flames were fueled by highly flammable toluene and methanol.

Balanaciere said firefighters are pouring water onto storage tanks situated yards from the flames to keep them from igniting.

Evacuations have been ordered within a quarter-mile of the plant.
