Investigator's Are Still Trying To Figure Out What Caused Refinery Fire

Investigators in Pulaski County are still trying to figure out what caused last week's fire at the Somerset refinery.

Officials are focusing on an area where octane levels for gasoline are increased.

No one was hurt in Friday's fire, but it created smoke that could be seen for miles.

The refinery had just resumed production last Monday, after a nine-month hiatus due to legal issues.
