CITGO is planning to reopen part of a damaged oil refinery in southwest suburban Lemont.

The refinery caught fire last week damaging part of the crude oil unit.

Citgo says the section that was not damaged is undergoing safety reviews currently. The company hopes to reopen that part by the end of next week.

No one was hurt in last week's fire.
