PORT ALLEN, La (FOX44) - Several families in Port Allen are steaming mad about activity at the Port of Baton Rouge.
Many we spoke with say this plume of steam caused them to hold their noses, because it put off an awful smell, even though fire officials say the fumes weren't hazardous

They tell us, with so many chemicals across the street, they still were concerned.
The fire chief says that mixture was being offloaded from a barge, and it needed to be liquefied then pumped into the tank, which is what the steam, and the smell was.
