An apparent lightning strike ignited a seal fire around the top of a crude oil storage tank Friday afternoon at a refinery in Port Dickson, Malaysia, local media report.
According to the Hengyuan Refining Company, the fire broke out at about 4:20 p.m. as a thunderstorm passed through the area. Other sections of the refinery were not affected.
Video captured by aerial drone clearly show the floating roof still in position with fire burning in the seal between the roof and the tank shell.
The Malaysian-owned refinery has a licensed capacity of 156,000 barrels per day.
