               Sunrise News to Go Friday April 27        Here's what you need to know going into Friday

As life returned to normal Friday in Superior, schoolchildren and their teachers still had the day off. Kristin Trianoski, who teaches fifth grade at Great Lakes Elementary, met two of her colleagues for lunch at Tavern 105.

They will remain available for mop-up efforts, he said, but Superior fire crews cleared the site at 2407 Stinson Ave.at 8:15 a.m.to focus on regular runs.

"The older kids knew what was happening, and they were scared".

City officials say the main mission is to get people back to their routines after what's been a very hectic time in their community. "It was unclear how many residents and others were impacted".

"When we were all running away, they were running towards". She said the extent of injuries is unknown.

"As black clouds billowed from the refinery, fire crews were involved in a seesaw battle with the fires since the first one broke out at the Husky Energy refinery on Thursday morning", Wisconsin Public Radio reports.

In all, 21 people sought hospital care as a result of the fire, and all but one has been released, the News Tribune reported.

Thousands of residents are getting back to their homes after a refinery explosion and fire forced them to evacuate in northwestern Wisconsin Thursday.

Linda Hale was grateful there were no fatalities.

It was not immediately clear how many people were affected by the evacuation order.

"It was just a place to relax".

"Right now we have confirmation that that unit was not compromised whatsoever", he said.

After an initial blaze was extinguished, a storage tank was punctured and a second fire erupted, a Husky Energy spokesman said, and another tank caught fire later.

"I think it's awesome the way everybody came together and Mayor (Jim) Paine did a marvelous job and Duluth stepped in". If you were here, you saw the gridlock throughout the city of Superior.

Hale closed her windows in case the wind shifted and blew smoke inside.

The asphalt fire sent chemicals into the air in gaseous form, and those tiny particles can stick around long after the smoke has dissipated, according to Wilma Subra, a chemist with the Louisiana Environmental Action Network who has examined past refinery accidents.

Government agencies planned to conduct air monitoring tests to gauge the hazard, refinery manager Kollin Schade said during an evening press conference.
