Topics: IRAN AFGHANISTAN
Iran sent 10 fire trucks to fight the blaze in response to a request by the local Afghan provincial governor, Abolhassan Mirjalili, a senior emergency official in Iran’s South Khorasan province, told Iranian state TV.
It was not clear how the tanks had caught fire. “Three 150-ton tanks are on fire,” Ali Akbar Mazidi, head of Iran’s Mahiroud border terminal, told the semi-official news agency ISNA.
“The blaze has not reached Iran’s territory and our forecast is that it will be contained in another 30 minutes.” ■
