Several enormous explosions rocked a burning solvent and oil recycling plant Wednesday night in northeastern Mexico, Protección Civil de Nuevo León states.
At about 9 p.m. flames broke out at the Soluciones Ambientales Arriaga recycling plant in Garcia, Nuevo León. Authorities later increased the initial response from seven to 13 fire units as the fire threatened to spread to neighboring businesses in the Mitras Industrial Park.
Residents of the nearby Bicentennial neighborhood fled from their homes without waiting for an evacuation order, Milenio Television reports.
No injuries have been reported. A fire at a Garcia warehouse in April injured four people, two of them with burns.
