UK fuel depot fire contained

`British authorities say they have contained a fire raging at a fuel depot that injured 43 people, but it will take a day to burn itself out. [..]

Forty-three people were taken to hospitals for their injuries, Whitely said, but the majority were “walking casualties.” All but two have been released, he said, and those two do not have life-threatening injuries.

Although firefighting units with more than 150 firefighters were on the scene, authorities said the fire may have to burn itself out.’
