Crews at the CHS Refinery in Laurel had to knock down a fire Friday morning. Employees reported the fire around 8 AM. It started in the diesel hydro treating area, where sulfur is removed from diesel. Non-essential personnel were evacuated during the fire. Refinery officials say the fire was out a little after 8:30.

John Traeger, a Vice President at CHS, says there was only one minor injury during the fire, a twisted ankle.

Officials couldn't immediately say how much impact the fire would have on the rest of the refinery's production. At this time, the cause of the fire has not been released.
