In all, 21 people sought hospital care as a result of the fire, and all but one has been released. The person was listed in good condition. The weather service said winds were expected to weaken Thursday evening and eventually shift toward Lake Superior.

Kollin Schade, refinery manager for Husky, told reporters that the facility was preparing for a May shutdown for servicing and inspection at the time of the explosion and that most of the fire and smoke was from asphalt burning.

"All indications are that the refinery site is safe and stable and the air quality is clean and normal", Superior Mayor Jim Paine wrote in a 5:38 a.m.

Paine said the site was under control and although trace levels of chemicals and dust were detected during air quality monitoring, authorities said they weren't enough to endanger the public. But then authorities announced the evacuation order would remain and be re-evaluated throughout the night. But they felt confident based on data they had gathered overnight, to support the evacuation order being lifted.

The company was responding to an incident at the refinery and emergency crews were on site, Husky spokesman Mel Duvall said, adding, "We are aware an individual has been transported to the hospital".

The fire was contained Thursday at 6:42 p.m.
