Texas City Fuel Fire at a BP Refinery
Earlier today, a BP spokesman and officials from Texas City reported that a fire broke out in a residual hydro treater unit at the oil company’s refinery in Texas City.
While no cause has yet been discovered for the fire and the fire was still being dealt with around 2:30 p.m., about an hour after the initial report of the fire, no refinery workers are reported as missing or trapped in the building. At the time of the report, there were also no injuries reported.
Fortunately, the workers at this BP refinery were able to escape physical injury; however, fires and explosions can be devastating accidents in which many people can sustain serious injuries.
