BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) - A high-pressure hydrogen line ruptured, causing what sounded like an explosion and sparking a fire Saturday morning at an oil refinery in Bossier Parish.

Bossier Parish Fire District 1 firefighters arrived on the scene shortly after 10 a.m. at Calumet Princeton Refining off Louisiana Highway 157.

Police say the fire was contained quickly and nobody was injured.

Police believe an equipment issue caused the rupture.

Lieutenant Bill Davis from Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office says

A hazardous-materials crew examined the plant for any chemical that would pose a threat to the community and found none, Bossier sheriff's Lt. Bill Davis said.

Authorities continue to investigate and examine the plant for further damage.
