The fire, which occurred at 1230 local time, in the refinery's phosphorus storage warehouse, was caused by a technical glitch in the conveyor belt of the chemical.
The refinery's firefighting team was able to contain the fire and extinguish it within 20 minutes, after the activation of the emergency response plan in the refinery, Head of Public Relations and Media at KNPC, Mansour Al-Ajmi told KUNA.
