MOSCOW – Russian authorities have confirmed that an oil storage building in western Russia has been set on fire.

According to the Emergencies Ministry, a large fire broke out at the Bryansk depot on Monday morning. Its cause wasn’t immediately clear.

Transneft-Druzhba is the owner of the depot. It is a subsidiary Russian state-controlled Transneft, which operates the Druzhba pipeline transporting crude oil to Europe. It wasn’t clear if the depot was part of the pipeline infrastructure and whether the blaze could affect the deliveries.

Russian news reported that another oil storage facility in Bryansk also caught fire early Monday, and that the cause wasn’t immediately known.

Bryansk lies about 100 km (60 miles) north the border with Ukraine. Moscow has been conducting a military campaign there for the past two months. Last month, two Ukrainian helicopter gunships hit an oil reservoir in Russia’s Belgorod region that borders Ukraine, causing a fire.
