They know about the petroleum products stored there and danger spots. He said the immediate area of the explosion and the ensuring asphalt fire remained "very hot" on Friday, and that fire crews on loan from nearby Duluth, Minnesota, were still mopping up. "It was unclear how many residents and others were impacted". Authorities say there are no fatalities and all workers are accounted for.

"When we were all running away, they were running towards".

The duration and extent of the toxic hazard depends on a variety of factors, such as wind direction and speed, proximity to the refinery and weather events that can trap pollution close to the ground, said Elena Craft, senior health scientist for the Environmental Defense Fund.

An explosion rocked the Husky Energy Oil Refinery in Superior on Thursday morning.

In all, 21 people sought hospital care as a result of the fire, and all but one has been released, the News Tribune reported. A man who suffered a blast injury was upgraded to good condition.

Authorities lifted an evacuation for Superior order just before 6 a.m., allowing residents to return to their homes and jobs in the Lake Superior port city of 27,000 people. "I don't have any kids to worry about, but there are schools all around and I think they handled it pretty well, getting the kids into a nice, safe place for everybody to pick them up".

"On April 26, EPA deployed emergency responders to support local and state agencies at the Superior Refining Co. fire in Superior, Wis. EPA has conducted air monitoring to support city evacuation determinations and continues to collect air data".

They said they didn't feel the explosion, but they could definitely see that big, black plume of smoke.

It was not immediately clear how many people were affected by the evacuation order.

"Right now we have confirmation that that unit was not compromised whatsoever", he said.

"We want to make sure that it doesn't reignite", said Superior Fire Chief Steven Panger.

"I think it's awesome the way everybody came together and Mayor (Jim) Paine did a marvelous job and Duluth stepped in".

Hale closed her windows in case the wind shifted and blew smoke inside.

Kollin Schade, refinery manager for Husky, told reporters that the facility was preparing for a May shutdown for servicing and inspection at the time of the explosion and that most of the fire and smoke was from asphalt burning.

"We found consistent low trace levels, well below any health standards, virtually anywhere we went for volatile chemicals, particulate and dust", Morrison said. You have to wait until it cools off so you can start the water foam operations.
