Refinery Fire Extinguished, Hazmat Monitoring Underway

San Antonio Missions National Historical Park

National Park News

On Wednesday morning, an explosion rocked the AGE Refinery located between Mission San José and Mission San Juan, forcing the closing of Mission San Juan and Mission Espada.  The refinery fire was successfully extinguished early on Wednesday evening. The San Juan acequia, a Spanish colonial era irrigation ditch system, is situated immediately adjacent to the refinery.  Hazmat teams deployed booms around the refinery to supplement the refinery‚Äôs spill containment system.  The park is working with the City of San Antonio, the San Antonio River Authority, and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to get soil and water tests conducted on the acequia and the San Antonio River for possible contamination.
