BIG SPRING - The ALON-USA is already starting to re-open parts of the refinery, damaged in Monday's explosion.

On Friday, the company re-opened its refinery's truck rack.

The move comes after reports the refinery could be offline for about two months.

Officials say it will take that long to get the refinery up and running in a limited capacity.

Five people were injuried in the blast, including one worker with burn injuries.

Still no word on what caused the blast in Big Spring.
