Valero Making Repairs After Fire At Texas City Refinery

Officials today estimate it should take three weeks to fully repair a Valero refinery in Texas City where fire damaged parts of the plant.

The cause of yesterday's fire is being sought.

The blaze was contained in less than two hours.

Emergency officials say the only injury was a man who scraped his knee while evacuating.

San Antonio-based Valero estimates it will lose production of about 67,500 barrels of gasoline per day during repairs.

It also expects to lose 40,000 barrels of distillate production per day.

The Valero refinery, located 40 miles southeast of Houston employs about 500 people.
