According to media reports, a fire, which broke out at an oil terminal in Wakayama, Japan last Sunday, was extinguished yesterday.

The reports revealed that the fire on Sunday broke out following another fire in a crude oil tank at the same refinery last Wednesday, which was emptied for cleaning.

The fire might reportedly have resulted from a unit producing lubricant oil, which caught fire.
The refinery can produce gasoline, kerosene and benzene.
