Fire breaks out at Chevron refinery in California
RICHMOND, Calif. (MCT) — A massive fire at the Chevron refinery in Richmond sent thick black smoke wafting across the San Francisco Bay Area sky Monday evening, and more than 160,000 people were warned to stay inside.
Shortly after the fire broke out at 6:15 p.m., flames and two large plumes of black smoke rose five or six miles into the sky, drifting across the bay. Chevron spokesman Lloyd Avram said no explosions were reported on-site, however witnesses reported hearing at least four loud blasts.
