Fuel thieves sus­pected in Mex­ico pipe­line fire:

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

A fire in Mex­ico sparked by sus­pected fuel thieves killed four peo­ple and forced state oil com­pany Pe­mex to tem­po­rar­ily halt pump­ing op­er­a­tions along a pipe­line in the coun­try’s vi­o­lent eastern state of Ver­acruz, the com­pany said. Pe­mex said that the fire was swiftly brought un­der con­trol and that none of the four vic­tims found along­side a car near the pipe­line were be­lieved to be com­pany work­ers. The pipe­line has a ca­pac­ity of 73,000 bar­rels per day and trans­ports gaso­line and diesel from Pe­mex’s Mi­nati­t­lan oil re­fin­ery to Mex­ico City.
