"The facilities continue to work at normal rates," said Exxon spokesman Todd Spitler.

The Houston Chronicle reported on its website that a man with a backpack was thought to have climbed over one of the Exxon security gates.

Employees were required to stay interior buildings in parts of the complex.

"To ensure the safety and security of our personnel, we implemented our site security map in portions of our complex today," Spitler said. "Working with law enforcement expertise, the majority of the work force has been released back to work."

Dogs were used in the look for of the complex after the intruder was reported at about 7:30 a. m. CDT (one thousand two hundred thirty GMT), said Harris County Sheriff'south Office spokesman Thomas Gilliland.

"Originally a male was thought to have trespassed onto the property," Gilliland said. "Canine units from HCSO were utilized but number positive contact was made on any male. Number contact was made with anyone and number substantiated claims were ever found."

The Baytown refinery was the site a large fire that spread black smoke over a large portion of northeast Harris County on Thursday. There were number injuries due to the blaze.
