A bright ball of fire shoots out from a recently activated burn unit on Shell/Motiva’s Norco refinery Tuesday morning. Shell officials said the flaring, which began Sept. 26 when the unit was activated, will continue intermittently for the next few weeks. The amount and duration will be limited as much as possible.
