WEST BOUNTIFUL — An explosion rocked one of the city's major refineries Wednesday night, but no workers were seriously injured.

Hydrofluoric acid likely caused the blast at the Holly refinery, 398 S. 800 West, just before 9 p.m., said South Davis Metro Fire Chief Jim Rampton.

"It was a pretty big fireball," Rampton said, though officials could not immediately say how much damage the flames caused.

WEST BOUNTIFUL - Holly Energy Partners' refinery here has returned to full operations this morning after a fire near a flare tower forced the facility to temporarily reduce production.

"The incident lasted only about five minutes, and no one was hurt."
