Fire at Tehran oil refinery kills six, injures three

A fire killed six workers and injured three others at an oil refinery in Tehran’s Shahr-e Rey district on Friday, state TV reported.

“The fire broke out in one of the refinery’s units, which was under construction. Six workers were killed and three were injured. The other units in the refinery were not affected,” a local official told the TV station, Reuters reported.

“The fire broke out due to an explosion caused by an oil leakage [in the distillation unit].”

The fire was contained yesterday.
