  • Description

    A giant petroleum fire which started at 11-o-clock on Wednesday night was still blazing today after destroying one petrol storage tank after another. All last night firemen continued to fight the blaze. This morning damage was estimated at some four million dollars. 13 million gallons of petroleum products have gone up in smoke since the first explosion in a storage tank. So far, fourteen of the 22 tanks in the area have been destroyed and a number of others badly damaged. However, fire officials are confident that they can confine the fire to the storage tank 'farm' itself.
