A massive explosion ripped through the oil refinery in the town of Bosanski Brod, northern Bosnia on Tuesday evening, leaving multiple workers injured, media reported citing eyewitnesses.
Town’s mayor Ilija Jovičić told a local television that the firefighting units were dispatched to the refinery.
“The explosion scared everybody. (…) We still haven’t received a request for assistance,” RTL Croatia was told by mayor of Slavonski Brod, Croatia, which is on the opposite side of the Sava river from Bosanski Brod.
Locals in Slavonski Brod posted videos on the internet of what appears to be a fire in the refinery compound across the river.
