COFFEYVILLE, Kan. (AP) — A fire broke out at a refinery in the Coffeyville area early Tuesday, sending four people to the hospital with burns.

CVR Refining says the fire broke out in the plant's isomerization unit around 12:30 a.m. The fire was extinguished about 45 minutes later, and a refinery shutdown was conducted.

Four employees were injured and hospitalized. Other information, including their current conditions, were not available.
