NEW YORK, Feb 24 (Reuters) - BP Plc (BP.L) reported a fire late on Monday in a coke barn at its 265,000-barrel per day refinery in Carson, California, according to company filings with state environmental regulators.
One filing with the California Emergency Management Agency said “crews are responding to a refinery fire which is in the coke barn and tunnel, to extinguish the fire ...”
The tunnel will be flushed to extinguish the fire, which broke out in a conveyor belt containing petroleum coke, said other BP notices filed with the agency.
BP officials could not be reached immediately for comment. (Reporting by Haitham Haddadin; Editing by John Picinich)
