An oil refinery in the southwestern part of Iran caught fire yesterday evening, leaving six people injured.

Firefighters on the scene at the Abadan refinery have brought the blaze under control, a local official said.

The damage to the plant at Abadan had no impact on oil exports from Iran, the world’s fifth-biggest exporter, as it is involved in producing gasoline and some other fuels, not the production of crude.

According to the ISNA news agency, one of the injured was in a critical condition.
