HOUSTON, Miss. (WTVA) - This time last year, residents in Houston saw smoke rise in the air and through their neighborhoods as a nearby facility burned.
Leggett and Platt's storage facility, filled with poly foam, caught fire this time last year. No one was injured in the blaze.
It took crews hours to tame the blaze and smoke.
Houston Fire Chief Jonathan Blankenship said when his firefighters pulled up to the blaze, the sky was black.
Schools with the Houston School District let out early due to the smoke.
"That's hopefully a career fire, one of the largest," Blankenship said. "So we don't want to top that one."
