A fire at an oil refinery in Russia’s Krasnodar region on Tuesday has been extinguished, a local emergency task force said.

The RIA Novosti news agency said the blaze had been caused by a technical fault with flaring equipment. It said refinery was continuing as normal, citing the plant’s press service.

The refinery has a capacity of 3.1 million tonnes of oil per year and produces jet fuel among other products.
