An apparent explosion and fire at a bio-diesel facility in Mississippi has forced the closure of a highway and rattled nearby residents.
The fire was reported shortly after 6am local time, and residents in the nearby town of New Albany reported hearing two explosions. Authorities say there were workers at the facility, but that no one was reported injured.
The Mississippi Highway Patrol is rerouting traffic from Highway 15, and expect the roadway to remain closed for several hours.
