Blast leaves dozens injured at Wisconsin oil refinery, reports say

The explosion took place just after 10 a.m.at the refinery across the Lake Superior harbor from Duluth.

There are no other details of the extent of the injuries or how many, or how many casualties there are at this time.

An explosion at Husky Energy's refinery in Superior, Wisconsin, injured at least 10 people, sent smoke billowing into the sky and shook a building a mile away, officials at the local hospitals and the fire department said on Thursday.

The company was responding to an incident at the refinery and emergency crews were on site, Husky spokesman Mel Duvall said, adding, "We are aware an individual has been transported to the hospital".

"We have responders on site", he said.


Panger said the fire was out by 11:20 a.m., although smoke could still be seen rising from the plant. Panger said a small tank exploded containing either crude oil or asphalt. A spokeswoman for Essentia Health says one person was seriously injured, while another nine being treated at Essentia hospitals in Superior and nearby Duluth, Minnesota, have non-life-threatening injuries.

A contractor who was inside the building told WDIO television that the explosion sounded like "a sonic boom" and that it happened when crews were working on shutting the plant down for repairs. There have been no neighborhood evacuations.

No damage estimate was available. It's Wisconsin's only refinery, and it produces gasoline, asphalt and other products.

Husky Energy of Calgary, Alberta, bought the refinery previous year for $492 million. The facility can process up to 38,000 barrels of oil a day.
