LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Officials said no chemicals were released and no injures were reported Sunday morning after a fire broke out in one of the units at the Phillips 66 Lake Charles Manufacturing Complex.

Carol Collins, Public Relations Director for Phillips 66, said the fire began around 6:30 a.m.

"The plant's in-house emergency response team was immediately called to the scene and extinguished the blaze," Collins said in a news release. "There were no injuries and no impact to the community. As required, the refinery notified all appropriate local and state agencies."

Westlake Police told KPLC the fire was out by 7:50 a.m. and a few roads near the refinery were blocked off and the fire was quickly put out.

Collins said the cause of the fire is under investigation.

KPLC's Haley Rush will have more on later editions.
