A fire broke out at the large crude unit of the Phillips 66 refinery Wednesday afternoon in Billings.

The incident occurred at about 1:45 p.m., Travis Sloane, a spokesperson for Phillips, said in a press release.

The fire was extinguished in about 15 minutes by on-site personnel, he said. 

No one was injured in the fire and employees have been dispatched off-site while air quality is measured, Sloane said. There does not appear to be any environmental harm as a result of the fire.
