India fuel plant fire rages

PLEASE NOTE: EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL The fire at this fuel storage plant in western India broke out on Saturday and is threatening to spread. Fire-fighters have been battling through the night to bring it under control. At least four workers at the plant are unaccounted for. A relative fears the worst. SOUNDBITE: HARSH NARAYAN, RELATIVE, SAYING (Hindi): "They were doing some railing work over the tank. At that moment the blast happened so I guess they might have died there on the spot. Among them are my cousins Jalandhar Chaudhary, Ravi Swain and Raut Kar, and one more whose name I don't know." The blaze, near Surat city, broke out in a tank containing thousands of litres of petrol. Fire crews from neighbouring cities have been drafted in to help combat the flames. The storage terminal is operated by the state-run Indian Oil Corporation.
