HOUSTON (Reuters) - A fire broke out on Friday night at an Enterprise Products Partners LP brine pit at its natural gas liquid (NGL) fractionation and storage complex in Mont Belvieu, Texas, said a spokesman for the company.

No injuries were reported from the blaze, which was nearly extinguished by 9:30 p.m. CDT (0230 Saturday GMT), said Enterprise spokesman Rick Rainey.

A Mont Belvieu Police Department spokeswoman confirmed the fire was contained and nearly out.

The fire started when hydrocarbons, likely butane or propane, mixed in the salt water brine were ignited, Rainey said.
