Another refinery fire

There was an explosion and fire, apparently this morning, at BP's Whiting, Indiana refinery. None of the news articles I found by google provided much information, even the approximate time of the explosion. ABC out of Chicago has some video which suggests that it wasn't huge and is well under control.

I think that makes the third or fourth explosion or fire at US refineries in the past few months. I don't know how common they are, but I do expect that within minutes, long before any serious investigation has begun, that some cop or FBI guy will be saying it wasn't terrorism.
