(CNN) -- An explosion injured three people early Friday at an industrial plant in Crosby, Texas, according to CNN affiliate KPRC-TV in Houston.

All three men were taken to hospitals, where they were listed in stable condition, KPRC reported.

All the employees at the plant east of Houston were accounted for after the blast, the Harris County Sheriff's Office said.

Hazardous materials teams were called in, but no evacuations were required as a result of the explosion, sheriff's officials added.

The explosion resulted from a small fire in a reactor dealing with fuel additives used by oil and gas companies, local officials told KPRC.
