According to representatives of the fire service, one of the explosions occurred before a fire started in a cooling tower at an oil refinery. The explosion illuminated the night sky in Carson and raised a large cloud of smoke into the air. The nearby 405 motorway was temporarily closed to traffic in both directions, but was later reopened.

According to the fire service, the crews controlled the flame using stationary ground-based monitors while working on depressurizing the system.

There is currently no information on the cause of the fire or on human injuries.

The company describes the facility on its website as “the largest refinery on the West Coast with a crude oil capacity of 363 barrels per calendar day.”

The plant produces gasoline and diesel fuel, as well as distillates, petroleum coke, anode coke, chemical propylene, fuel coke, fuel oil and propane.

Crews from the Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to the incident and were able to locate the perimeter of the fire, reports FOX 11 Los Angeles.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the evacuation of nearby residents was not required.

Health officials monitored the air quality in the area and did not find any harmful products released into the air as a result of the fire.
