A chemical fire at a Port of Catoosa business early Wednesday remains under investigation.

In our 6 In The Morning Show, we mistakenly reported the fire was at Syntroleum products based on incorrect information from the scene. We regret that error.

The fire was actually at Advance Research Chemicals.

Fire investigators are trying to determine how chlorine triflouride and water came into contact with each other sparking the blaze. None of the workers in the building were injured.

The business sustained some smoke and water damage.

Tulsa's HazMat team was called in to help Catoosa and Tulsa firefighters since chemicals were involved.
