Dateline 2020-03-16, CNA:

A fire and explosion on Sunday night (Mar 15) killed five people at a refining and petrochemicals complex in Malaysia’s southern state of Johor.

Another person sustained 70 per cent burns, Pauzan Ahmad, an official with the Johor state fire and rescue department, said on Monday.

The incident occurred at the diesel hydro treater unit in the Pengerang complex owned by Petronas and Saudi Aramco, Pauzan said, adding that the cause of the fire was under investigation.

Pauzan said the Johor state operations centre received an emergency call about the fire at about 11.20pm.
