WOODS CROSS, Utah (AP) — A neighborhood in Woods Cross is being mopped up after a break in a fuel tank sent oil spraying onto buildings, cars, and streets.
A Holly Refinery statement says nobody was hurt when pressure built up in the fuel tank and broke the top cover Thursday night, but a coat of oil ended up in the area around the tank, which is located on the eastern side of the refinery.
Some of the fuel landed on an Interstate 15 off ramp.
Refinery officials say the fuel oil isn't dangerous, but the residue is slippery and messy. The company is using booms to prevent the oil from washing into the sewer system.
It's also hiring companies to clean up the neighborhood.
Officials say they're investigating the pressure buildup.
