    Flint Hills Resources LLC reported a fire yesterday in a fluid catalytic cracker at its Corpus Christi East refinery in Texas, according to a state filing.  The fire at the FCCU 2 was extinguished, the company said in a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The event began at 8:56 a.m. local time and lasted about 15 minutes.
    Katie Stavinoha, a Flint Hills spokeswoman, declined to comment about the incident. While the cause is under investigation, preliminary information indicates a leaking valve ignited, combusting approximately 840 gallons of light cycle oil, according to the filing.
    The refinery is composed of East and West plants, with a combined capacity of 305,000 barrels a day, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
