Demolition Work Going on at Alon Refinery

BIG SPRING - NewsWest9 has been flooded with calls about the Alon refinery this afternoon.

It's because of smoke being seen from the refinery.  We did some checking and there is nothing to worry about.

Alon tells NewsWest 9 they are doing some demolition work and the plume of smoke your seeing is actually from all the debris and dust.

The Alon refinery suffered a major explosion back on Monday, February 18th. That explosion has caused parts of the plant to be shut down. Crews are now working to bring the refinery back on line as soon as possible.
