5 crews injured in Barisal oil tanker blast
Five crews of a fuel oil tanker have suffered burnt injuries as its engine room caught fire in Barisal. The blast took place when the vessel named MT Anchorage was unloading fuel at the depot of Jamuna Oil Company Limited on the bank of the Kirtankhola River in Barisal on Saturday night. Assistant Director of Barisal Fire Service station Md Faruk Hossain said: “The incident took place around 9:30pm. Five units of the Fire Service went to the spot and extinguished the flame within an hour. “The injured were sent to Barisal Sher-e-Bangla Medical College Hospital in critical condition.” The vessel was carrying 900,000 litres of petrol and diesel from Chittagong for the depot in Bandh Road area, said Faruk, blaming deposition of gases in the engine room for the explosion. The engine room was heavily damaged and the unloading of fuel had to be continued with the help of another vessel to prevent the oil from spreading in the river, he said.
