Large fire breaks out at oil facility in crisis-hit Lebanon – BBC News


Firefighters say they have extinguished a large blaze at an oil facility in Lebanon, which was already grappling with chronic power outages.

The fire erupted on Monday morning in a petrol tank belonging to the army at the Zahrani Oil Installation, sending a plume of black smoke into the sky.

No casualties have been reported.

The facility is close to one of Lebanon’s two biggest power plants, which both had to shut down two days ago because of a shortage of fuel.
