Two people were injured Thursday in a blast at an Anadarko Petroleum natural gas plant in Texas.

According to Reuters, an explosion set off a fire at the Ramsey natural gas plant in Orla, Texas on Thursday morning that prompted evacuations.

A spokesman for Houston-based Anadarko told Platts that two people suffered minor injuries and that all of the plant’s staff members have been accounted for.

The fire was contained to one section of the plant on Thursday  and “all lines coming in and out of the plant have been isolated,” the company spokesman added.

No environmental impact has been reported.

There is currently no timeline to restart the plant, said.

The cause of the blast has not been determined yet.

The 300,000 MMcf/d  plant is owned by Western Gas Partners, a unit of Anadarko Petroleum.
