A large flaring event and power outage was spotted Tuesday morning at the former ExxonMobile refinery in Torrance.
Large flames were coming from the refinery, now owned by PBF Energy, just before 6 a.m. as Sky5 was flying near the area.
Power appeared to be out at the refinery and in the areas surrounding the facility.
PBF Energy assumed ownership of the refinery in July, according to the Daily Breeze.
There was no immediate word on what may have caused the flaring event.
