Heavy Smoke Fills Air After Electrical Failure At Eastman Chemical Plant

 Thick smoke stretched over parts of Longview this morning, after an electrical substation failure at Eastma Chemical Plant. The system failed around 7:30 a.m. at the plant located at the 300  Kodak Boulevard. Plant officials say the dark smoke filled the air after large amounts of propane and natural gas burned off. The smoke was so deep that drivers all the way from Interstate 20 caught a glimpse of it. Officials say no one was injured.
