Fire breaks out at Baytown Exxon plant

August 6, 2009 2:13:56 PM PDT
A small pipeline fire at the Exxon Mobil plant is causing minor power outages in Baytown. We brought the fire to you as breaking news a short time ago. SkyEyeHD was over the scene as firefighters put out the flames. Some pipes somehow caught fire and then caught the grass on fire. Response was quick and there was never any danger to the public.

CenterPoint tells us at one point they had about 1,500 customers in the area lost power. That number is down to just 22. We're also told the burn offs at the plant will continue for a while.
