Errors in structure turned the fire into a disaster of high proportion in Matanzas

The rapid spread of the fire among the oil tanks at the Matanzas Supertanker Base shows that there were defects in its structure.

When building such large tanks for fuel, a certain distance must be respected between them and the fence of each one, precisely to prevent the spill in one from affecting the other.

For these storages, it is necessary to create access roads to these places that allow firefighters to do their job in case of disasters such as the one unleashed in Matanzas last Friday, August 5, and the communists lack them.

As for the “dry tubes”, responsible for cooling the tanks in case of fire, they did not exist at the site of the catastrophe.

All these factors have influenced the fire to become a disaster of great proportion.

This Tuesday it was announced that four of the eight fuel tanks at the Matanzas Super Tanker Base had collapsed.

Today the fire remains confined and both Cuban and international specialists work in the area using water, foam and other chemical products to extinguish the flames.

The fire, unprecedented in Cuba, has so far left nearly 5,000 people evacuated and 125 injured, including the Minister of Energy and Mines, Liván Nicolás Arronte Cruz. As a result of the incident, 14 firefighters, including children who were in military service, remain missing and two have been publicly identified as fatalities.

The consequences that contamination from the fire can bring to health is cause for alarm. An environmental contamination of this nature brings complications to health, mainly in the respiratory tract; as well as in the long term it can cause pneumonia, lung cancer, cardiovascular diseases, nervous system, liver, and kidneys.
