A fire in a petrochemical factory in southwestern Iran on Thursday led to the death of one worker and injured four others, Iranian state TV reported.
The report said the worker died after jumping off a platform where the blaze erupted during the unloading of carbohydrate materials. It said firefighters put out the fire after two hours. The TV broadcast footage showing smoke rising from the facility.
The incident happened on Kharg Island in the Persian Gulf, which is home to Iran's biggest crude export terminal. The report did not elaborate as to what caused the fire.
