Two people suffered minor injuries after a fire at Sinclair Oil Refinery in Sinclair, WY, officials said.
None of the injured required hospitalization, officials said. Refinery officials said the fire on Tuesday was from a flange on top of a pressurized storage tank.
The areas surrounding the tank farm evacuated as a precaution and workers put out the fire shortly after it occurred, said spokesman Ryta Sondergard.
This is the first fire at the refinery since a September 2013 explosion that also did not result in injuries.
