Rt.com A massive fire and explosions of oil tanks at a storage facility near Kiev has killed several firefighters. After nearly a day of tackling the fire, the risk of explosions still remains in the area, authorities say. Three reservoirs, one with oil, two with fuel, continue to burn in the area on Tuesday evening, according to Ukraine’s emergency services. According to a local TV channel 1+1, cited by RIA: "There were 180 rescuers at the facility when the blast occurred. It's not known how many survived. Ambulances can hardly manage to cope with transporting those injured. Rescuers say that gas pipelines run behind the oil tanks on fire, and they can explode as well.”
