Texas chemical fire rages for second day, thousands evacuated

A major fire at a Texas petrochemical plant continued to burn for a second day on Thursday, with the 60,000 people forced to evacuate still uncertain whether they could return home to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. Officials say they’re allowing fires at the plant to keep burning to depressurize its pumping and storage systems. The evacuation order will be reassessed on Friday morning.
