LONGVIEW - Heavy smoke billowed from the Coors Plant in Longview, Texas for hours Tuesday.
The fire started at the plant around 10:30 am.
Gregg County Fire Officials say the fire started in a large keg cooler where repairs were being made to a copper pipe.
The torch used to make those repairs ignited insulation in the cooler.
