WOODS CROSS, Utah (AP) -- An official at a refinery disrupted by a fire says the plant is temporarily producing less gasoline than normal.

A ruptured pressure safety line caused the fire Wednesday at the Holly refinery, which processes about 25,000 gallons of crude oil per day. Plant officials say the fire didn't cause any significant damage but repairs require reduced gasoline production.

A company spokesman says other units at the refinery that produce gasoline were brought back on line Thursday after being shut down a day earlier. He says production of gasoline, jet fuel and diesel is expected to resume at the regular rate within the week.
