A fire broke out in one of the facilities at the Bazan oil refineries in Haifa as a result of a damaged pipe in the CCR system on Friday night, the Environment Protection Ministry reported in a statement.
Immediately after the fire broke out, the factory’s emergency team began working to extinguish the flames as fire and rescue forces were called to the scene before gaining control of the flames.
The plant has currently stopped supplying fuel to the facility, and the gases have been diverted to a torch fire, designed to deal with such incidents.
The staff of the EPM headed by Haifa District Director Shlomo Katz, began conducting tests on site later in the evening.
Earlier this week, an executive committee established by the government recommended Israel to remove Bazan’s petrochemical plants in Haifa within 10 years.
