Fire Injures Four At Iran Petrochemical Plant

At least four people have been injured, after a fire broke out at a petrochemical plant, in southern Iran.

A fire broke out on Wednesday at Iran’s Mobin Petrochemical refinery complex in southern port of Assaluyeh, leaving four people injured, state media reported.

“The fire … is now under control,” Qassem Qaedi, crisis management coordinator in the southern province of Bushehr, was quoted as saying.

Qaedi added that the fire has caused no threat to the operations in the South Pars gas fields in Assaluyeh.

There have been a number of fires at petrochemical plants in Iran in recent months, with Iran’s oil minister blaming the cause of the fire on privatised petrochemical companies cutting their budgets for health and safety inspections.
