Dateline 2018-07-06, Straits Times:

Fire and rescue officials are battling to contain a blaze at three oil storage tanks of the Tipco Asphalt refinery in Malaysia’s southern town of Kemaman, media said on Friday (July 6).

The fire, which began on Thursday, had spread to a third tank, the New Straits Times newspaper said on its website, adding that losses were expected to run into the millions of ringgit.

Authorities expect to douse the fire in the first two tanks by Friday afternoon, Malaysian media quoted Assistant Commissioner Azlimin Mat Noor, an official of the fire and rescue department in the state of Terengganu, as saying.
