    According to the fire officials, three consecutive explosions took place at the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) in India’s Gujarat state. The fire broke out at around 3:05 a,.m. (local time) on Thursday morning and was put out within several hours.

    A massive fire was witnessed at a gas processing plant in the Indian state of Gujarat early Thursday. Videos of the blaze at the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) plant located in the city of Hazira are now being widely shared on social media.

    In most of the videos, the sky can be seen lit up with orange flames of fire due to the explosions which took place at the ONGC plant.

    Several fire engines were deployed to control and douse the flames as huge thick smoke kept coming out from the explosion site.

    The ONGC,a multinational crude oil and gas company, said in a statement that the fire has been brought under control and there hadn't been any casualties or injuries.
