Chevron Refinery On Fire

A fire struck one of two crude units at Chevron's 325,000 barrels per day Pascagoula, Mississippi, refinery late Thursday, injuring no one but helping send gasoline prices nearly 2% higher.

A "major portion" of the plant, Chevron's biggest in the United States, continues to operate, company officials told Reuters.

The blaze was noticed at 2:15 p.m. Central Time and contained a couple of hours later, but still was burning at 8:30 p.m. Central Time.

They were unable to say what caused the fire, how much damage it had caused or when full operations would be restored.

"There were no injuries," said Steve Renfroe, the refinery public affairs official.
