By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Friday, August 5, 2022, lightning struck a large oil storage tank in Matanzas, Cuba causing a huge fire, CNN reports.

President Miguel Diaz-Canel told the media that the government is closely monitoring the fire and authorities are battling the flames.

Local media say no deaths have been reported.

The fire comes amidst the energy crisis and fuel shortages in the country.

“No human losses, injuries, or fuel spillage into the sea were reported after the fire,” Cuba’s Ministry of Energy and Mines said.

Cuban officials noted that the fire did not impact the Thermoelectric Powerplant Antonio Guiteras which contributes to the national electricity system.
