Small fire breaks out at Flint Hills refinery
Crews put out a small fire at Flint Hills Resources during the early morning hours of Friday May 30. The fire started about 1:15 a.m. and was swiftly contained by the refinery's fire crew.
"Our folks took care of it pretty quickly," said Flint Hills public relations manager John Hoffland.
Hoffland said a seal in a pump broke and caused the fire. He said the company will continue to investigate to make sure there is no further need for concern.
