Massive Expolsion Rocks Marathon Refinery In Detroit [VIDEO]
As we all know it doesn't take much for gas prices to take a jump. I wonder if this will make that happen?A tank containing diesel fuel has exploded during maintenance work at Marathon Detroit Refinery, forcing a mandatory evacuation order for a nearby area. Authorities on the ground say the explosion injured an employee. The incident occurred during a maintenance check.
The adjacent city of Melvindale however ordered a partial evacuation due to concerns over air quality from the fire rise. State police also closed ramps from I-75 to Schaefer in both directions.
About 300 Marathon employees and additional 300-400 contractors work at the refinery. See amateur video below.
