Explosion rocks Wisconsin refinery, injuring at least 11, forcing evacuations

An explosion rocked a refinery in northwestern Wisconsin, injuring at least 11 people Thursday, forcing the evacuation of homes, schools and a hospital, and sending a plume of noxious smoke billowing into the air. Authorities said Thursday evening that the fire has been extinguished.

Douglas County officials posted an update Thursday evening saying the fire is extinguished but asking residents in the evacuation area to stay away from their homes for at least another two hours.
