Santa Barbara County firefighters extinguished an injection station pump fire in Orcutt Monday morning.

At 10:27 a.m., fire crews responded to a report of a vegetation fire on E. Clark and Dominion Road in Orcutt. When crews arrived in the 3200 block of Dominion Road on the Greka Oil Station property, they found an injection station pump fully involved in flames causing a lot of smoke, said Captain Dave Zaniboni. 

The above ground pump is used to treat water and oil and was fully extinguished by fire crews. 

There was no other damage to other facilities or properties and an investigator is on scene determining the cause of the fire.

Oil Pump Fire in Orcutt

Oil corporations keep telling us how safe they are. British Petroleum convinced Congress they were perfectly safe, needed no more safeguards. They spent 16mil for lobbyists to convince them "There will never be another Santa Barbara" (1969 spill). We all know how that turned out!

I knew before I ever read this article that Greka was probably the source of this in the L-O-N-G list of environmental disasters here in our county. Sure enough! Why don't they get shut down by the State & County? It couldn't be political, could it? Is the current, less-than-popular head of the EPA a tight bud of Mr. Greka?
