Ironic-While Out Yesterday Looking at Gas Refineries in Hood County, Heard of Refinery Explosion in West Texas

Hood County has at least 2 gas *sweetener* plants, one in Tolar and one in Granbury near the Hood County/Somervell County line. One of the speakers at the meeting to be held today lives near a gas refining plant in Robertson County and we were viewing, from the road, the ones here locally.  While going home, I heard this on the news.

An explosion rocked a west Texas refinery Friday, critically injuring at least three people and sparking a blaze that sent a huge black cloud billowing into the sky.

More than 400 workers were evacuated from the Valero McKee Refinery after the explosion, authorities said. No fatalities were reported, and the plant said all employees had been accounted for.

"The main thing is getting them away from there," Moore County Judge Rowdy Rhoades said.

Paul Jenkins, fire chief in the nearby community of Dumas, said Valero's fire brigade was fighting the blaze. The refinery was shut down after the blast, as were pipelines in and out of the facility, the company said.

Valero Energy Corp. said the fire was believed to have started at the refinery's "propane deasphalting unit," where fuel is processed at high temperatures. Witnesses said the smoke could be seen 60 miles away.
