Cuba Battles to Contain Major Blaze at Fuel-Storage Terminal

Cuban soldiers, firefighters and teams from Mexico and Venezuela on Sunday battled to contain a fire at a major oil storage terminal in Cuba’s port of Matanzas, pumping seawater to cool explosive tanks.

The major fire at Matanzas Supertanker Base was sparked by a lightning strike on Friday night, injuring 120 and killing at least one person, and missing more than a dozen firefighters, authorities said. At least five people were in critical condition.
