 – A large fire at a motor engine oil factory in Isfahan’s Mobarakeh industrial town in central Iran on Sunday has been brought under control, state TV reported.

About 95% of the fire has been extinguished, said Mansour Shisheforoush, head of Isfahan province’s crisis-management body told state TV, adding that a team was clearing the site and that the fire had not spread to adjacent industrial units.

Shisheforoush said that 15 workers were injured, but only three needed to be transferred to hospital.

Special teams were on the ground to investigate the cause of the fire.
