BILLINGS – An internal investigation into the massive Christmas Eve fire at the Conoco-Phillips refinery in Billings has been completed. But, the company said it will not share any details with the public.
Conoco Spokesman Bill Stephens said the investigation produced some valuable lessons and the company has made adjustments to prevent similar incidents from happening again. The explosion and fire caused the roof of a tank containing asphalt to collapse and the walls to buckle.
The fire started around 3:30 p.m. on December 24th. Billings fire officials and local refinery crews were able to contain the spectacular blaze.
The company said it monitored air quality throughout the fire and there was no public health risk. No one was injured during the blaze.
