Talking to Shana, Neshanzadeh said fire in the BDSR depot of Bandar Imam petchem facility started at 5 hours in the pm and from the point the products had been assembled.

He said that fortunately, the safety personnel in charge were smart and quick enough to prevent spread of fire to other points and sections in the facility.

He noted that fire is getting put off and it will be totally extinguished in the coming hours. 

The official said rubber burning is different from that of hydrocarbon products and is usually coupled with dense smoke. “This is possible, causing concern in society around; I announce that there is no room for concern.”

He said depot contained 4,000 tons of stored products and soon the precise amount of damage will be announced through the media.

He had earlier announced that the incident had left no fatality.

He said the fire had broken out in the BDSR part and has not disrupted entire activity of the facility.
