Reports from India say the death toll from a massive fire at an oil depot in the western state of Rajasthan has risen to at least five, with more than 100 people injured.
The media reported the blaze in Sitapura industrial depot on the outskirts of the state capital, Jaipur, broke out late Thursday following several explosions. It is unclear what triggered the explosions.
Local authorities have called the army to help firefighters battle the flames.
Emergency workers have rushed the injured to nearby hospitals, evacuated residents living near the depot, and cut off power across the region as a precautionary measure.
Indian authorities warned the death toll could rise since many of the injured have suffered severe burns.
Petroleum Minister Murli Deora is expected to travel to Jaipur Friday to visit the scene.
