A flare-up at the Phillips 66 refinery in Rodeo prompted health officials to issue a warning this afternoon to residents.
According to KPIX the flare-up was reported just before 3:15 p.m., Sunday afternoon, at the refinery on the 1200 block of San Pablo Avenue. Chief Environmental Health and Hazardous Materials Officer Randy Sawyer of Contra Costa County says that while no shelter-in-place warning has been issued, people with smoke sensitivities may want to stay indoors.
Sawyer says there was smoke in the area, but by the time officials responded to the location there were no flames to be seen. By 5:03 p.m., officials lifted the warning after the fire was put out:
