Fire breaks out at Slovnaft refinery, one person hospitalised

A fire occurred at the Bratislava-based oil refinery Slovnaft on Monday, June 24. “We started an ethylene unit, and there was a smaller fire during this start, but it was soon extinguished by our factory firemen,” Slovnaft spokesperson Anton Molnár told the TASR newswire. “We did not need any help from outside, it was just a minor accident.”

One man was examined at the hospital in Ružinov, but his condition did not require further hospitalisation. “The man complained about problems with breathing, but examinations finally didn’t reveal intoxication by combustion gasses,” the spokesperson of the University Hospital Bratislava, which operates the Ružinov hospital, Petra Stano Maťašovská, said. “After the treatment, he felt better.”
