Explosion hits third crude oil tank in Cuba

by APA

A third crude tank collapsed on Monday at Cuba’s Matanzas terminal following a spill from a second tank that caught fire on Saturday, a local governor said on Monday, in the biggest oil accident in decades in the island, APA reports citing Reuters.

Cuba had made some progress during the weekend after drawing on help from Mexico and Venezuela to fight the raging flames, but late on Sunday the fire began spreading from the second tank, which collapsed, said Mario Sabines, governor of the Matanzas province, about 130 kilometers east from Havana.
