Three workers were injured Monday morning when a 300-ton crane collapsed at Exxon Mobil’s refinery in Torrance, fire officials said.

The contract workers suffered minor injuries during the collapse at the refinery in the 3700 block of West 190th Street, said Battalion Chief Bob Millea of the Torrance Fire Department.

Fire officials said the crane was moving debris at the refinery just after 9:30 a.m. when it suddenly collapsed, he said.

Water was doused onto the debris to stop any vapors from escaping, Millea said. The situation, he said, appeared to be “static.”
