MARTINEZ — A public health advisory temporarily issued for a lot of East Bay communities after reports of smoke at the Tesoro refinery in Martinez.

The incident was reported Tue at 11:47 at the refinery located at 150 Solano Way in Pacheco.

The refinery experienced a loss of its “primary steam generation unit that caused upsets in a lot of process units.”

“These upsets resulted in flaring with visible smoke. A CWS Level two was activated per procedure, due to the smoke drifting offsite,” refinery officials remarked in a statement.

The refinery is no longer flaring.

The incident has since been downgraded to a CWS Level 0, according to refinery officials.
