EL DORADO — Officials say no one was hurt after a fire broke out at an oil refinery in southern Arkansas.

According to the El Dorado News-Times , the fire was reported at about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Delek refinery, which was formerly known as the Lion Oil refinery. The newspaper reports that the refinery has its own fire brigade, which had the blaze under control by about 7:15 p.m. Tuesday.

Officials have not yet said what caused the fire but say nobody was injured.

In 2011, Delek acquired Lion Oil Company, including the El Dorado refinery and other product terminals in Tennessee.
