One Hurt in Mexico Pipeline Fire

MEXICO CITY One person suffered burns in a fire caused by the theft of fuel from a pipeline in the Mexican Gulf coast state of Veracruz, state-owned Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) said on Monday.

Thieves targeted a section of the Minatitlan-Mexico City pipeline in the municipality of Nogales.

Pemex personnel shut off that segment of the pipeline as soon as they learned of the breach, implementing the standard protocol for emergencies.

The fire was put out by a Pemex team with assistance from units of the Mexican army and the emergency services department in nearby Ciudad Mendoza, the company said.

Another section of the Minatitlan-Mexico City pipeline exploded in February 2016 as a gang was illegally tapping the conduit.

Pemex estimates that losses from fuel theft total about $5 billion annually.
