2013-01-16T18:45:00Z No injuries reported in Cheyenne refinery fireBy ADAM VOGE Star-Tribune energy reporter Casper Star-Tribune Online

No injuries were reported after a Wednesday afternoon fire at the HollyFrontier Corporation-owned refinery in Cheyenne.

According to company investor relations representative Julia Heidenreich, the fire happened just after noon following a leak in the refinery's delayed coker unit.

"There was an ignition and a fire which our highly trained fire brigade and operators extinguished," she said.

The fire was contained and the unit has since been isolated.

Heidenreich said there will undoubtedly be "ripple effects" of the fire, but the company has yet to determine how the incident will affect ongoing operations.

"It's too early to say," she said. "We're still assessing the situation."

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
