On Aug. 29, 2017, flooding from Hurricane Harvey disabled the refrigeration system at the Arkema plant in Crosby, Texas. The plant manufactured organic peroxides. The following day, people within a 1.5 mile radius were evacuated. As the trailers increased in temperature the peroxides spontaneously combusted on Aug. 31. Officials ignited the remaining trailers, on Sept. 3 and the evacuation zone was lifted on September 4. This November 2017 Chemical Safety Board video is an animation depicting these events.
