PASADENA, Texas – A pipeline caught fire Tuesday morning in Pasadena.

It happened at the glycol re-boiler unit at Kinder Morgan’s West Clear Lake natural gas storage facility in the 5200 block of Genoa Red Bluff.

No one was hurt.

Pasadena firefighters worked with Kinder Morgan crews to contain the fire. There were no evacuations and a shelter-in-place wasn't necessary.

Emergency responders temporarily blocked portions of Genoa Red Bluff Road near the plant.  

Glycol is an organic compound widely use for anti-freeze for vehicle use.  Glycol is used in natural gas processing to remove water from natural gas.
