A massive fire has broken out at an oil and gas processing plant of India’s state-run Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) at Uran near Mumbai, the commercial capital of the country, APA reports citing Sputnik.

ONGC said in a tweet that the fire broke out in a stormwater drain in the processing plant. It said, there was “no impact on oil processing. Gas diverted to Hazari Plant” in the neighbouring state of Gujarat.

​There is conflicting versions about the number of casualties in the fire. While the English daily The Times of India reported five persons had been killed in the accident and three others sustained burn injuries, another daily The Hindustan Times put the death toll at four people.

According to the police, the fire broke out around 6:45 a.m. IST, when there were few workers in the building. The fire engulfed a huge part of the plant. “Three employees who were working inside, reportedly suffered injuries in the accident and they were rushed to a nearby private hospital", said a police officer.
