At 12:26 a.m. on July 29, 2014, four employees were working at a petroleum refinery. They were in the refinery's isomerization unit. A pump there had a leaking seal, so they were realigning the configuration of the pumps. The employees were starting the deluge system to transfer the pumps, when a vapor cloud explosion occurred. The four employees were engulfed in a flash fire. The employees sustained thermal burns on their torsos, legs, arms, and faces. The employees were transported to the medical center to be stabilized. Then they were flown by helicopter to Hillcrest Medical Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. One employee died as a result of his injuries.
