Fire Reported at Pertamina's Cilacap Refinery

Reuters, October 5, 2016

A fire at Pertamina's Cilacap refinery in Indonesia shortly after midday on Wednesday has been extinguished, officials at the state owned energy company said. The fire started during maintenance to an asphalt tank that was being emptied and may have overheated, Pertamina Refineries Director Rachmad Hardadi told Reuters. "It did not spread," and did not affect the refinery's normal operation, Hardadi said. The fire had been sprayed with foam and had been extinguished, Hardadi said.
