From today’s Amarillo Globe News:

Cabot Corp. is investigating the cause of a fire at its carbon black plant near Pampa. The fire began about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at the plant, two miles west of Pampa, on U.S. Highway 60, a Pampa firefighter said. A Cabot spokesman said the equipment involved in the fire had been shut down for maintenance. He said the fire was contained before Pampa firefighters arrived. No injuries were reported.

Carbon black is produced at the plant by burning special oils, the spokesman said. The material is used in liquid crystal display screens, cables, tires and other applications, he said.
