Pertamina halted fuel distribution through the pipeline temporarily, a company spokeswoman, Dewi Sri Utami, told reporters.
She said the company would not comment on the cause of the fire until after it has carried out an investigation and is focusing for now on putting out the blaze.
Video footage showed thick black smoke rising from one side of a highway and engulfing part of a busy toll road.
The construction worker who was killed was a crane operator, the local fire department official said by telephone to Reuters. ■
