MONT BELVIEU, TX - The remains of a chemical plant worker have been discovered more than 24 hours after a massive fire at the plant.

The worker is identified as Rick Shaw, a contractor at the Enterprise Products plant in Mont Belvieu near Houston.

A massive fire ignited the plant Tuesday in what may have been a ruptured pipeline that carried natural gas.

Federal safety experts are investigating.
