The Warri Refinery and Petrochemical Company, Delta State, was on Tuesday morning gutted by fire.
The cause of the fire, which started at about 11.00am was not immediately known.
said it started from one of the refining plants in the complex. The
fire was still raging at the time of this report and Warri and its
environ was engulfed in huge overcast of smoke pouring into the sky from
the blazing inferno.
was gathered that the management of the company, a subsidiary of the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, has sent SOS to the state fire
service and companies that have private firefighting equipment to join
in the efforts to quell the inferno. Strange!
