Martinez Renewable Fuels (Marathon Refinery) experienced a fire that could potentially affect surrounding areas, leading to a public health advisory being issued for Martinez, Pacheco, Concord and Clyde. People were directed to visit http://cchealth.org/hazmat for more information. However, the fire was brought under control shortly after and the public health advisory was lifted.
Later, CCH updated their website at 3:54 a.m. to report a flaring incident at Marathon Martinez that may be visible to the surrounding community. The situation was resolved and an “all clear” was issued on their website, indicating that the flare had been resolved and there was no need for further concern.
