The fire at CDM Max LLC is under control following an explosion at the natural gas plant this afternoon. State Police are now allowing the fire to burn itself out. One man suffered burns to his upper body and is listed in stable condition after being airlifted out. The State Police Haz Mat team is trying to figure out what exactly caused the fire. There was an evacuation of residents with a one-mile area surrounding the plant, but that was quickly lifted. A spokesperson with the company told us "we have experienced a fire at the Basile Gas Processing Plant. We know that one employee was injured and taken to the hospital and emergency responders are on site."
