Fire Leaves No Fatality

TEHRAN, Aug 30 (Shana) – Head of the Health and Medication Department at Bushehr Industries Office Mehrdad Hosseinzadeh said fire in the basin of the sixth refinery of South Pars gas field had left no fatality.

Hosseinzadeh said despite large scale of the fire and the dense smoke going high into the sky, no loss of life had thus far reported.

He said since the incident occurred away of the gas sweetening facilities, no danger threatens the industries in the area.

He added t hat five ambulances are stationed in the area and the medical and nursing staff are there for help.

Meanwhile, senior HSE commander Mehdi Youssefi said fire in the sixth refinery of South Pars was fully put off just while ago and cooling operations will continue for another hour just to be sure of re-ignition of the flames.

Fire in the Seorm Basin of the sixth refinery of phases 15 and 16 of South Pars on Tuesday was extinguished as the crisis management committee convened to manage the incident and put off the inferno.

The basin was away of the phases 15 and 16 of South Pars, so the incident did damage the refinery and did not disrupt the refining process.

Based on the report, the smoke plummeting the sky was caused by burn of oil substances in the basin and had nothing to do with the refinery facilities.
