Flames, smoke released from Sunoco plant in Marcus Hook
MARCUS HOOK - March 28, 2011 (WPVI) -- Flames and black smoke were shooting from stacks at the Sunoco plant in Marcus Hook, Pa. after a power failure.
The power failure happened around 4:30 p.m. Monday at the Delaware County refinery.
Sunoco tells Action News that the power outage was brief. The power was back on in seconds, according to officials. Still, the refinery needs to shut down and start back up. Sunoco says pressure needed to be released in order to shut down the affected processing units.
