    Looks like CCRL Regina Refinery had fire/explosion Thursday.
    If you look at picture closely think you can see the integrated New Grade Upgrader coker in far left corner (opposite side of smoke).
    Note – Since picture didnt make post – go to link and see Regina fire picture & look at coker far left.
