office so it's impressive. We turn to the latest on that deadly chemical plant exexplosion outside Houston killing one person and injuring two others. It's the second major plant fire in the area in just weeks. ABC's Marcus Moore is on the scene in Crosby, Texas with more. Good morning, Marcus. Reporter: Cecilia, good morning to you. Emergency officials still have the roadways shut down around the plant where this explosion happened but the fire itself is out but new video has surfaced capturing the sound of this massive explosion that happened at the chemical plant in Crosby. One worker was killed. Two others critically hurt. Now, this particular plant has a history of osha violations and the local county is actually suing the current owners over allegations that this plant has violated clean air and water laws. Now, the current owners have apologized for the latest incident and say they are cooperating with investigators to prevent it from happening again. But the top environmental official here has told our station, KTRK in Houston that this plant has, quote, been a thorn in the county's side for years. Michael. All right, thank you so much, Marcus.
