HOUSTON (AP) — A worker injured in a fire this week at a Houston-area chemical plant is suing the company that owns the plant and is seeking more than $1 million in damages.

The lawsuit filed Wednesday is believed to be the first submitted on behalf of a worker injured in Tuesday’s fire at the KMCO chemical plant in Crosby, about 25 miles northeast of Houston.

Randy Villaloboz says in the suit he suffered severe injuries and mental anguish, and claims KMCO failed to properly train employees or maintain a safe work environment.

One worker was killed in the fire and at least two others were injured.

Authorities have not released the cause of the blaze .

An email message sent to the company seeking a response was not immediately answered.
