Port Arthur, Texas - The Port Arthur Fire Department continues to provide over-watch fire protection at the German Pellets terminal at the Port of Port Arthur. The silo is still smoldering, and no flames have been present since early Sunday morning.

Air quality levels are being monitored at the Port of Port Arthur near the German Pellets silos and throughout the community. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is supervising this activity. Air quality testing has shown no detectable changes in air quality, and the area will continue to be evaluated by TCEQ.

The PAFD will continue to provide support while working with German Pellets and our many responsive community partners.
