An explosion was reported at the Engen refinery in the south of Durban on Friday morning.

Provincial emergency services spokesman Robert McKenzie said a large cloud of smoke could be seen above the Tara Road refinery in Wentworth this morning.

The blast, which took place just after 7 am, could apparently be felt as far as Durban city center. It is suspected that a tanker exploded.

There are reports from more than one eyewitness that an apartment building close to the refinery is also on fire.
