Eleven different fire departments had to be called to fight a three-alarm fire at a business in Mont Belvieu Sunday night. It happened at the Honey Solutions plant off the East Freeway at Needlepoint Road. The call came in around 8pm. Firefighters put the fire out without anybody getting hurt, but they took extra precautions.

"Initial assurance this is a honey farm, so they produce honey," explained Mont Belvieu Fire Department Chief Kenny Baumbach. "They have various chemicals on location and we called Harris County HazMat teams to come assist us, to do air quality tests, stuff like that."

Air quality tests came back negative for any hazardous materials. Arson investigators are trying to determine what caused the fire.
