Richmond Refinery Fire 8/7/12 8.00a AF

A Chevron refinery in Richmond exploded into flames Monday night after a small in a diesel processing unit caught fire and spread.    The 6:15 pm blaze threw clouds up smoke over East Bay cities, and caused the closure of the Richmond Bay Area Rapid transit through last night.    The fire was contained and eventually extinguished last night.   Only one mild burn to an employee of the refinery was reported, but several dozen residents around the facility checked into local hospitals with respiratory problems.
