Two explosions and plumes of black smoke were reported today (31) at a flooded chemical plant in Crosby, Texas, near Houston, officials said.

One deputy was hospitalized after he inhaled fumes from the Arkema peroxide plant, the Harris County Sheriff's Office said via Twitter.

Nine others drove themselves to the hospital as a precaution, the sheriff's office said.

But the smoke the 10 deputies inhaled is believed to be a nontoxic irritant, the sheriff's office tweeted.
