Governor Manoochehr Hayati in the southwestern city of Mahshahr says a gas leak at a supply line of the Imam Khomeini Petrochemical Complex was the cause of the fire.

The semi-official Fars news agency quoted Hayati as saying that the fire had been extinguished and factory operations had not been interrupted.

The factory produces oil derivatives.
