One person is missing and another is hurt after an explosion at a chemical plant in Texas. 

Crews worked to put out the massive fire at the Tri-Chem Industries Plant in Cresson, Texas, where the blast occurred. 

The fire was reported at 10 a.m. Thursday. The Hood County Sheriff said one person was badly burned and another is unaccounted for. 

Cresson's mayor said firefighters were considering pulling back from the scene over the risk of additional explosions.
