Another refinery explosion and fire

There was an explosion and fire in a New Mexico Oil Refinery today as reported by the Miami Herald: bq. Two explosions followed by fire rocked a gasoline refinery Thursday, seriously injuring four people, officials said. bq. Smoke billowed from the east side of the Giant Industries refinery about 15 miles east of Gallup in western New Mexico as rescue crews converged on the scene. Probably an industrial accident but it will be bad for fuel prices in that area. There was another refinery fire about a week ago in Texas. Posted by DaveH at April 8, 2004 1:17 PM
