Fire crews were called to a blaze at an oil refinery in Carson on Thursday afternoon.

Smoke could be seen billowing from the Phillips 66 refinery facility at Sepulveda Boulevard and Alameda Street around 5 p.m.

Firefighters declared the flames extinguished shortly before 7:20 p.m., Los Angeles County Fire Department officials said.

No injuries were reported, officials said. Air quality measurements taken Thursday afternoon were normal, but authorities planned to continue to monitor readings.

The refinery was also the scene of a massive fire on March 15.

It was unclear what initially sparked the blaze.
