Fire At Country's Gas Storage Facility Won’t Affect Supplies
There is no danger to the country’s gas supplies in the wake of a fire that broke out at a natural gas storage facility in Hajdúszoboszló, in eastern Hungary, in the early hours on Tuesday, national gas service provider Magyar Földgáztároló told MTI.

The company added that three other storage facilities have taken over and are providing the necessary amounts of gas to distributors.

Magyar Földgáztároló head Dániel Fáber said that the fire started along pipes from the gas wells to the storage facility itself, after which the affected pipes were isolated and the wells shut down.

Nobody was injured in the accident, he added.
