Sharjah 24 – Reuters: A fire broke out Tuesday (October 15) in two tanks at a NuStar oil storage facility in Contra Costa County California, according to an alert issued by county officials.
Traffic was limited and nearby residents were ordered to shelter in place during the blaze at a storage plant near Phillips 66's Rodeo, California, refinery, according to the alert.

No injuries were reported, according to a person familiar with the plant.
