Firefighters are battling a blaze in a flooded Houston neighborhood

Firefighters are battling an out of control blaze in a flooded Houston community.

Normally, firefighters would try to put the flames out from the inside, but the burglar bars around what appears to be a multifamily housing complex have prevented them from getting into the building, according to ABC affiliate KTRK.

There is no word on what sparked the fire.

The Arkema chemical plant in Crosby, Texas, has caught fire.

The plant produces liquid organic peroxides which are commonly used in the creation of consumer products like headlights and PVC piping, reports CNN.
