refiner's fire 2

refiner's fire, originally uploaded by Nannerlady.

You could see the black smoke from miles away yesterday. This is actually off the 405 near the Carson/Long Beach border. There were 4 fires, but 2 were really burning something off.


  1. When I was deployed to the Gulf on the Gary (way back in 93), we could see the refinery fires at night from miles away. Never got close enough to actually see the platforms themselves. Cool photo, though :)

    I assume it's part of the refining process, though I don't know for sure.

    That wasn't the most interesting thing I saw int he Gulf though...
