MEXICO CITY (AP) — A fire has broken out at a partially flooded refinery in southern Mexico.
The state-owned oil company Pemex reports there were no immediate reports of injuries.
Television footage shows a huge column of flames and thick black smoke pouring from one part of the refinery complex.
The company says the fire broke out Wednesday in what appeared to be a pumping plant.
The refinery's operations had been suspended Tuesday because of heavy rains from former Tropical Storm Calvin.
The facility is located in Salina Cruz in the southern state of Oaxaca.
