Safety vs enforcement: Agencies at odds over probe

FILE - This Aug. 6, 2012 file photo shows smoke pouring from a fire at the Chevron Richmond Refinery, seen behind Alcatraz Island in San Francisco. The federal government is fighting with itself over a massive fire at a Chevron refinery in California that sent 15,000 people to hospitals with respiratory ailments. In one corner is the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board, which conducted 119 interviews in an effort to find out what caused last year’s accident and how to prevent it from happening again. In the other is the Environmental Protection Agency, which is conducting a criminal investigation and wants the interviews to help it determine who’s responsible. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg, File)
