 A fire that engulfed a kerosene unit at the Mina Abdullah refinery on Tuesday evening has been put out, the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) has said.

The fire broke out at 11.30pm local time on Tuesday, and it took firefighters about 75 minutes to extinguish it, KPC chief Hashem Al Hashem said in a statement carried by Kuwait News Agency (Kuna).

“There are no human casualties and the situation is under control,” he said.

“Once the fire is fully quenched, a committee would be set up to investigate the incident.”

The cause of the fire has not been established yet, but Al Hashem believes that it could have been caused by a mechanical failure at one of the unit pumps.
