KTRK-TV(HOUSTON) -- A four-alarm fire Thursday at a warehouse complex in the Texas city of Spring Branch, located in the northwest Houston area, sent roaring flames and long plumes of black smoke into the sky, as canisters of hazardous materials exploded loudly throughout the morning.

More than 150 firefighters were deployed to put out the blaze, according to ABC's Houston affiliate KTRK-TV.

A resident of the area told KTRK that the explosions shook the foundation of her home.

The warehouse complex is situated near several schools. No students are believed to be in danger at this time.
