JEFFERSON HILLS, Pa. (AP) - Firefighters have extinguished a fire at a chemical plant near Pittsburgh.

A spokesman for Allegheny County emergency dispatch says an explosion and fire were reported shortly before 11:30 p.m. Saturday at Eastman Chemical Resins in Jefferson Hills. He says a shelter-in-place order was issued for neighboring Elizabeth Borough, but it was lifted after officials decided air quality was acceptable and there was no danger to residents.

The fire was extinguished about two hours after it began. There were no injuries.

According to its website, Eastman Chemical Resins produces chemicals and resins for industrial use.
