Valero Energy Corp. spokeswoman Lillian Riojas told The Associated Press in an email Tuesday that the company's response teams were on the scene. According to Valero, local authorities are cooperating with other agencies to extinguish the fire.

Workers build a wall of sandbags along the damaged levee near the Valero Port Arthur refinery in preparation for Hurricane Harvey on Thursday. The department is asking residents of one section of the city to stay inside. An eyewitness shared video of the fire, showing dark clouds of smoke coming from the refinery. The facility remained closed for about two weeks. It was not immediately clear whether the blaze was related to the restart process or impacts from the storm.
