GRAMERCY, LA (WAFB) -
Authorities said a massive plant fire may have sparked due to the weather that passed through the area Wednesday night.
The Rain CII plant in Gramercy caught on fire around 7:30 p.m. It is located near the Noranda Aluminum plant and is a part of the old Kaiser Aluminum plant.
St. James Parish Sheriff Willy Martin said the lightning from storms may have ignited the fire. The roof of the plant is made of wood. It caught fire and collapsed on top of a product stored in the facility known as calcined coke.
There are no reported injuries. The fire has been controlled to the confines of the Rain CII plant and there is no off-site impact.
Parish President Timmy Roussel said there have been no evacuations and there will be no need for any. The Louisiana State Police Hazmat team said the product burning is not hazardous.
LA 44 in Gramercy near the plant is shut down and will remain closed until the fire is out. Officials said it could possibly burn until Friday.
Martin added the fire could get up to temperatures of 1200 degrees.
