RICHMOND -- Crews are working to contain a massive fire at the Chevron refinery in Richmond but thick black smoke continues to waft across the Bay Area sky and more than 160,000 people are being warned to stay inside.
An official with the Contra Costa County Health Services says the fire, first reported at 6:40 p.m. Monday, is burning in a process unit at the facility.
Randy Sawyer says it's not known what sparked the blaze. No injuries have been reported.
Video shows large flames with thick black smoke coming out of at least two refinery stacks at the facility.
steps Contra Costa Health Services recommends be taken after safety sirens or other warnings are issued when a fire at a refinery is burning. They say that in the case of a chemical accident it is safer to be indoors than outside: -- Go inside your home or the nearest building
-- Bring in pets, if possible
-- Close doors and windows
-- Use window and door locks to create a better seal
-- Make sure your vents and fireplace flue are closed
-- Turn off heating, fans and air conditioning.
-- Avoid using the telephone unless you have a life-threatening emergency.
For more information, the county recommends turning on local radio or television news stations.
