DEER PARK, Texas (KTRK) -- A small flash fire was reported at Intercontinental Terminals Company's Deer Park facility on Tuesday.

Officials released a statement saying that pre-staged firefighters extinguished the fire immediately.

Air monitoring during the incident did not identify any elevated benzene levels during the time of the fire, officials said.
