Fire fighters have put out a fire that ignited at a tank facility owned by Texas International Terminals in Galveston, Texas.
It is unknown what started the crude oil tank fire but fire crews from Texas City, Santa Fe, League City and BP joined the local fire fighters to help extinguish the blaze.
The facility, which has the capacity to handle about 1.25 million bbl of liquid cargo storage and 350,000 tonnes of dry storage, is situated on the docks in Galveston, which is about 45 miles south east of Houston on the Gulf of Mexico shoreline.
There were no reports of injuries aside from one worker being treated for smoke inhalation. The fire took about 11 hours to be put out.
