An oil purifier unit in the Khomein facility caught fire around noon ... which caused a blast in which two people were killed,” the deputy governor of Iran’s Markazi province, Fatollah Haghighi, told Tasnim.

The fire has been completely contained but firefighters will remain at the scene until the cooling operation is completed,” he added.
