At least two hurt in Dutch Shell chemical plant explosion

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: A fire broke out at a Shell chemical plant in the Netherlands late on Tuesday night following an explosion, according to the local fire department. The sprawling, 320-hectare or 790-acre plant near the southern town of Moerdijk manufactures chemicals from petroleum for use in products ranging from car components to synthetic fibers and insulation materials. It is supplied by a Shell refinery near Rotterdam. Local media reported two people suffered minor injuries. The flames and large plumes of smoke could be seen in from Rotterdam, about 30 kilometers or 18 miles away, according to eyewitnesses. Shell officials were not immediately available to comment
