In Tuapse, a fire broke out at the Rosneft oil depot after a drone attack

At night, a fire broke out at the Tuapse oil depot in the Krasnodar Territory. This was reported by the city administration.

The fire broke out around 2 a.m. on Industrialnaya Street, where, according to open data, there is an oil refinery of the Rosneft company. Photos of the fire appeared on local telegram channels.

Local residents said they heard two explosions on the territory of the oil depot with a difference of several seconds, as a result of which windows were smashed in nearby houses.

The Telegram Baza and Shot channels claim that the oil depot was attacked by drones which fell 100 meters from the oil storage. According to Astra, the boiler room was damaged and two funnels one and a half meters deep were found next to the building.

According to Astra, there is a barracks with Russian military personnel 30 meters from the scene of the incident.

There is no official information about it.

The city administration said that the fire occurred in an outbuilding on the territory of the oil depot and was completely extinguished. Local authorities say the fire did not affect oil tanks, there was no spillage of petroleum products and there were no casualties either. 32 firefighters and 11 vehicles participated in extinguishing the fire, the Tuapse administration reported.

Telegram channel 112 later claimed that the oil tank caught fire after being hit by ammunition dropped by a drone. Surazhsky district of Bryansk region is located relatively far from the border with Ukraine.

In early February, a major fire broke out at a factory in the Belgorod region after a shell hit a nearby storage yard. The region’s governor, Vyacheslav Gladkov, blamed the Ukrainian army for the bombardment.
