A massive fire erupted at a Chevron in Richmond that affected over 3,000 nearby residents.  The fire caused a rudimentary unit at the Chevron to spew toxic gas into the air.  Neighbors were warned to stay indoors.  Now everyone’s seeking a personal injury lawyer and the fire is being investigated by the EPA and the U.S. Chemical Safety Board.

Crazy enough in 1999 a similar fire at the Richmond refinery lead to a series of explosions and sickened an even larger number of the surrounding populace, putting the food from nearby taco trucks to shame.  Imagine that.
