Fire sweeps through oil refinery near al-Basrah early tuesday
In a dispatch posted at 10:12am Baghdad time Tuesday morning, the Yaqen News Agency reported that a massive fire broke out at the ash-Shu‘aybah oil refinery about 20km west of the southern Iraqi city of al-Basrah at dawn on Tuesday.  A source in the puppet regime in al-Basrah Province thought it probable that the fire had been deliberately set.
Yaqen reported the source as saying that there was a sound of explosions going off just before the fire started, implying that the blaze was ignited by a bomb or Katyusha rockets.  The fire began in two units where benzene is produced and then spread to other parts of the facility.  All the firefighting units in the city of al-Basrah responded to the alarm and began attempting to extinguish the fire.
The ash-Shu‘aybah refinery is one of the largest such plants in southern Iraq.  The fire there was the third major blaze to sweep through Iraqi oil refinery facilities in the last few days.
Later, in a dispatch posted at 2:32pm, Yaqen reported the spokesman for the puppet “Iraqi Oil Ministry” as claiming that the fire in al-Basrah had been caused by helicopter belonging to US occupation forces.  ‘Asim Jihad, the puppet “Ministry” spokesman said that his agency had repeatedly told the Americans and British to change their flight plans so as to avoid flying over the refineries.
Jihad explained that gas escaping from the refineries into the air can ignite and fuel fires in refineries.
Jihad also said that “Ministry” personnel had been able to get control of the fire, which had inflicted material damaged on the gas unit of the refinery.  He denied, however, that the refinery had been shut down.  Ten people were reported injured as a result of the fire.
