The fire at BP's Cherry Point refinery, near Ferndale, Wash., has been put out an hour and a half after fire crews from the site and neighbouring counties began fighting it, according to the company.

A storage unit tower on the south side of the refinery was reported to be billowing heavy black smoke around 2:25 p.m. according to Whatcom County fire officials.

The refinery - the state's biggest and one that can produce up to 230,000 barrels of fuel a day

Not much info available online except that "everything is ok move along"

i find it suspicious about a fire at a refinery where fire safety is and better be #1. How old are all of these refineries? sure they are maintained but with demands ever growing and over paid CEOs and Managers pushing their equipment harder and harder to get their bonuses (opinion) its only a matter of time until one of these giant processors has another breakdown

3rd largest refinery on the west coast on fire should be BIG NEWS

its a good thing they appear to have it under control!

damn you BP !!
