A massive oil well fire that has raged in northeast India for more than five months has finally been extinguished, officials said Sunday.
Since an explosion in June, weeks after the well blew out and started discharging huge quantities of raw gas, Oil India engineers have battled the blaze in Assam state, reports AFP.
In the explosion, which sent a wall of flame and massive plumes of smoke into the sky, two employees of the state-owned company died. A third worker died after an accident at the site in September.
