The state of Texas is suing Intercontinental Terminals Company for violating the Texas Clean Air Act. The lawsuit is related to the giant fire at the company’s Deer Park petrochemical facility.
In addition to the state, four La Porte residents have sued ITC. They’re seeking damages of more than $2 million.
The U.S. Chemical Safety Board will investigate the fire. Several school districts canceled classes and activities as a result of the fire.
