Crews quickly smother fire at oil refinery near Los Angeles

In this Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2017, photo provided by Jack Zellweger, a fire rages at the Chevron El Segundo Refinery in El Segundo, Calif. A fire that erupted at the West Coast’s largest oil refinery threatened storage tanks and sent huge flames into the sky and black smoke across neighborhoods before crews quickly smothered it. Dozens of firefighters responded late Tuesday to the 1,000-acre refinery just south of Los Angeles, which processes nearly 275,000 gallons of crude per day. (Jack Zellweger via AP)
