A massive industrial fire is raging in Channelview, Texas. The two-alarm blaze broke out late this afternoon. Residents heard loud noises and then saw a huge fireball fill the air, reported Click2Houston.

According to a tweet from Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, "hazmat and fire investigators are en route to assist Channelview Fire Department" to combat the fire raging at the K-solv facility in the 1000 block of Lakeside Drive.

"The two-alarm blaze that broke out at about 4 p.m. is sending a huge plume of thick, black smoke over eastern Harris County. Winds are blowing the smoke to the northeast from the facility. The smoke is so thick it is even visible on doppler radar," said ABC13 Houston

Multiple reports indicate residents in the surrounding community heard loud noises before the blaze broke out.
