SALT LAKE CITY (AP) ¿ Several trailers and equipment were damaged in a fire that lit up the skies at a Tesoro Corp. refinery in Salt Lake City.

City fire spokesman Mark Bednarik says parts of the refinery were evacuated while emergency crews joined refinery firefighters battling the blaze just after 9 p.m. Wednesday. No injuries were reported.

Bednarik says a pool of crude oil caught fire and spread to a 200-yard radius. It wasn't immediately clear what sparked the fire.

The fire disrupted highway traffic and rail service in the area.

Tesoro says the refinery produces gasoline, diesel fuel and jet fuel.
