Lightning strike sparks Venezuela refinery blaze

(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Lightning caused a blaze in two storage tanks at Venezuela's El Palito refinery late on Wednesday (September 19), less than a month after an explosion at the Amuay refinery. According to reports, firefighters have extinguished one of the fires and were working to put out the second, using fire-retardant foam. No deaths or injuries have been reported so far. On August 25, an explosion ripped through Venezuela's largest refinery, killing more than 40 people. Three storage tanks at that facility burned for days after the blast.
