A tank containing diesel fuel has exploded during maintenance work at Marathon Detroit Refinery, forcing a mandatory evacuation order for a nearby area. One employee has been injured in the blast, authorities said.
Reports of the explosion and fire came in just before 6 pm local time.
Authorities on the ground say the explosion injured an employee. The incident occurred during a maintenance check.
A witness, Dan Taylor told the Detroit News that “I saw the fire ball. The whole top of the tank was on fire and you could see it melted.”
The fire erupted in one of the refinery’s smaller tanks, Pochard told the Detroit Free Press.
Marathon’s own fire crew were battling the flames, along with first responders from Detroit and surrounding areas. At least two trucks at the scene were streaming water and two trucks were streaming foam.
