A storage tank with dirty oil briefly caught fire at an oil refinery in the southern Russian Krasnodar Region on Wednesday, presumably due to a falling drone, Governor Veniamin Kondratyev said, Azernew reports, citing TASS.

"A fire broke out on the territory of the Afipsky oil refinery. A mazut distillation facility has caught fire. A drone attack is tentatively named as a reason," the governor wrote on his Telegram channel.

"The fire was contained at the area of 100 square meters. There were no casualties," he said.

Shortly after, the governor announced that the fire had been put out.

"The fire at the Afipsky oil refinery has been fully extinguished. I thank all our services for their prompt and professional response," the governor wrote on his Telegram channel.
