“As part of the aid provided by the Mexican Government to deal with the damage caused by the fire at the Supertanker Base, 10 medical professionals from Mexico’s National Defense Secretariat arrived in Matanzas on Sunday,” Cuban Public Health Minister Jose Angel Portal said.

“Upon receiving them in Matanzas, we updated them on the situation in the province, exchanged experiences for the care of this type of injuries and explained the organization of the National Health System,” Portal wrote on his Twitter account.

The fire occurred on Friday night when an electrical discharge during a storm hit crude oil storage tank 52 at the Matanzas Supertanker Base.

The flames devastated a second tank and it was confirmed on Monday that the top of a third fuel tank had collapsed.
