— A raging fire at a chemical plant south of Dallas is sending black smoke billowing into the sky.

Bright orange flames and massive plumes of smoke can be seen Monday at the Magnablend Chemical Plant in Waxahachie about 30 miles south of Dallas. Authorities have advised area residents and schoolchildren to stay inside and keep doors and windows shut to avoid any dangerous gases.

Images from WFAA-TV show the fast-moving fire engulfing a fire truck at the scene as firefighters nearby battle the blaze.

Magnablend's website says it is a chemical manufacturing, blending and packaging company. The website says it manufactures custom chemicals for industries ranging from oil fields to construction and industrial cleaning.
