New Orleans -- An incident has been reported at the Nucor Plant in Convent. The incident occurred around 3:15 p.m. Wednesday. 

According to St. James Parish President Timothy Roussel one of the three domes on site that stores raw product of iron ore, imploded. The non-toxic gas inside of the dome does not pose a threat to the surrounding community. Roussel says that no injuries have been reported.

Roussel explains that Nucor is a new plant that has not even opened yet. Some work was being done to prepare for the opening before the incident occurred.
