A boiler fire at Abu Dhabi’s Umm Al Nar oil refinery was put out on Sunday morning with no casualties reported, state news agency WAM said.

Spokesmen for state-run refinery operator ADNOC were either unable or unavailable to comment on the incident when contacted by Reuters.

The fire broke out one of the boilers and spread to a fuel tank but Abu Dhabi emergency services prevented the blaze from reaching other units, WAM reported, citing rescue team officials. (Reporting by Stanley Carvalho)
