KIEV, June 11. /TASS/. Several fuel tanks went off at a blazing oil depot near the Ukrainian capital Kiev, but no casualties were recorded, the press service of the country’s State Emergency Service said on Wednesday.
"On June 10, at 10.10 p.m. a predicted explosion went off. Around four or five fuel tanks containing 55-75 tonnes exploded," the statement says. "As the blast was predictable, all the vehicles and personnel were pulled back, so there are no casualties."
The Emergency Service’s head Nikolai Chechetkin promised that rescue teams would be working round-the-clock, the press service said.
The fire at the BRSM-Nafta oil depot, located approximately 20 miles to the southwest of Kiev, erupted on Monday evening and resulted in several explosions of tanks. The death toll from the fire has reached four people, one person is reported missing and another 13 are injured. Regional prosecutors launched criminal inquiries into the case on charges of violation of safety rules at potentially explosive plants or in potentially explosive workshops.
