Two killed in BP refinery fire in Ohio

A fiery explosion at a BP oil refinery in Toledo, Ohio, killed two workers and has forced the plant to shut down, the company confirmed on Wednesday. "It is with deep sadness we report that two BP staff injured in a fire at the BP Husky Toledo Refinery have passed away," the company said in a statement. The fire at the BP-operated facility was put out Tuesday night but the oil refinery remains shut on Wednesday, the company said. BP agreed in August to sell its 50 per cent stake in the Toledo refinery for $300mn to Canadian oil group Cenovus, although that deal had not yet closed. An electrical fire at another BP refinery in Whiting, Indiana, on August 25 forced that facility to briefly shut down.
