On Monday, an explosion and fire at Chevron's Richmond refinery released plumes of smokes across Bay Area skies, closing BART stations and sending local residents to emergency rooms with breathing problems. The fire has now been contained, and there were no major injuries. We'll discuss the incident and the response.

We want to hear from you, particularly Richmond residents: what is it like to live near -- or work at -- Northern California's largest oil refinery?
