Tema, Jan 19, GNA - One person was reported to have died and another injured when fire broke out at the Loading Rag area of the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) on Tuesday.

The injured person is in critical condition and has been taken to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.

It took personnel from the TOR Fire Brigade and the National Fire Service more than one hour to bring the fire under control.

The cause of the fire is not yet known but an eye-witness said there was an explosion at the Loading Rag Area that was followed by the fire outbreak.

Information gathered by the Ghana News Agency was that the incident would not affect the operations of the refinery.

Efforts to reach Management of the Refinery to comment on the incident proved futile since they were in an emergency meeting.
