The fire had been immediately extinguished
by specialized personnel at the Aspropyrgos
refinery and there was no need for the
intervention by the fire brigade, the Hellenic
Petroleum said in a press release.


The accident occurred during routine
maintenance works, said the oil company.
Workers told local media that the alarm did
not go off to notify employees of an
evacuation from the site on time.

The company said it would launch an
investigation into the alleged malfunction
of the alarm system.
