Valero investigating cause of product release
PORT ARTHUR - Valero is investigating the cause of a product release at its Port Arthur Refinery early Monday morning.
Barbara Phillips with Valero says there was a release at about 5 a.m. Monday.
As a precaution police closed a section of Highway 87 near the refinery for about half an hour while workers investigated.
Air monitoring confirmed there was no risk to refinery workers or people who live nearby, according to Phillips.
