LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a leak at a Los Angeles oil refinery has exposed nearly a dozen workers to toxic sulfur dioxide gas.

The Los Angeles Fire Department says the leak was reported at about 10 a.m. at the Phillips 66 refinery in the Wilmington area.

City News Service says 11 people were treated for possible breathing problems. They were taken to the hospital in fair condition.

After about an hour, authorities reported there was no active leak and no danger to the community.

Phillips 66 spokesman Rich Johnson says other employees and contract workers were safe and the refinery is operating normally.
