Nadeen Abusada Provides An Update On The Exxon Fire

Following an overnight fire at Exxon Mobil, WBRZ’s Nadeen Abusada was on the scene in North Baton Rouge Wednesday morning with an update.
Nadeen joined Brian Haldane just after 7AM with the report that the fire had been extinguished, but the all clear had yet to be called. The reason Exxon could not yet give the all clear was that, while the fire was out, the cause of the fire, and the chemicals involved had yet to be determined. That meant the possibility of more problems remained.
Along with the status of the fire, Nadeen confirmed the details surrounding the entire event. She recounted the amount of time it took for fire fighters to contain the blaze. She noted that the fire was confined to an “isolated area.”
Another area of concern was the air quality during and after the fire. Nadeen reported that officials had been monitoring air quality from the start and that there were no abnormalities to report.
Should there be any updates throughout the day, we will have them here.
