‘DPR’ reports fire at oil deposit in Makiivka

An oil deposit in Makiivka, the Donetsk region of Ukraine, caught fire last night, as per the “Emergency Ministry” of the so-called “Donetsk People’s Republic.”

There was an ignition of two tanks with fuel with a volume of 70 cubic metres each on the railway outside the oil deposit, as well as three stationary tanks located near the railway track.

As the “ministry” reports, the fire was caused by “a hit of an explosive object.”

A firefighting train was sent out to deal with the fire. It was localised at about 9 a.m. local time.
