In a letter addressed to the president of the Union of Journalists of Cuba, Ricardo Ronquillo, Felap expressed its deep regret for what happened and its support to the people affected.

We accompany with our embrace the families, colleagues and friends of the victims in this moment of pain, says the letter, signed by the head of that organization, Juan Carlos Camaño, and its general secretary, Nelson del Castillo.

Firefighters and experts from Cuba, Mexico and Venezuela are working to control the fire that started on Friday after a lightning strike on one of the tanks of the fuel storage and distribution base.

Helicopters of the Revolutionary Armed Forces resumed this day the tasks to suffocate the fire that persists after the collapse of a third tank.

More than 100 people were injured and 16 are still missing.

Thousands of citizens residing in areas near the site of the incident were evacuated.
