The army has evacuated people from the area near the fire, to avoid any injuries in case of an explosion.
The Zahrani oil facility is located next to the Al-Zahrani power plants, which recently received fuel from the army to be able to continue producing electricity, as announced on Sunday by the Lebanese Energy Minister Walid Fayyad.
General Prosecutor Judge Rahif Ramadan has ordered an investigation into the cause of the fire, according to NNA.
