Fire at IOC, Hazira
A major fire broke out at IOC, Hazira terminal. The terminal stores various flammable chemicals life HSD, Diesel, Petrol, Kerosene, etc. and supplies to the outlets of south Gujarat. The storage tank farm of IOCL, BPCL and HPCL are located in close proximity, but fortunately at least 05. to 1 KM away from the state highway connecting Hazira to Surat.
The fire broke out at around 12:15 on 5th January, Saturday, which is going to be one of my the days in my life, I will never forget !
Coincidentally, I happened to visit the site on the same day to discuss with company officials about an assignment. I left the premises at around 12:00 pm and by the time I reach to my home I was informed about the fire.
I will share the reasons and investigations once the same are officially published !
