A Fiery Coincidence: Steel Plant Catches Fire After Explosion In Southern Iran

Click to see full-size image

On June 6th, a fire broke out at a steel factory in the Iranian city of Zarand in the central Kerman province.

The accident had reportedly occurred due to the spillage of molten material, Fars news agency quoted Ali Sadeghzadeh, governor of Zarand.

“A sudden overflow of molten material in the blast furnace caused a fire and smoke, and there was no explosion at the furnace site or other parts of the plant,” Sadeqzadeh said, denying earlier reports that an explosion caused the fire.

Sadeqzadeh said fire fighters and emergency crew had remained at the site of the Zarand Iranian Steel Co after the blaze was brought under control and that no casualties were reported.

An interesting twist in the Zarand incident is a report by a local media outlet that said personnel were evacuated as the possibility of an explosion “was predicted hours earlier” and no one was present where the fire broke out. While this cannot be verified, an official of the steel mill said the reason for the incident will be investigated once the fire is completely extinguished.

According to local sources the explosion was so strong that people in villages and surrounding regions of Zarand were jolted.

Despite the fact that several videos on social media show the fire and the explosion, Ali Sadeghzadeh, the governor of Zarand still denies any explosion took place.

On June 2nd, a massive fire had broken out at the Shahid Tondgooyan refinery in Shahr-e-Rey, south of the capital Tehran, state media reported.

Hours before the incident in Shahr-e-Rey, the largest ship in the Iranian navy caught fire and later sank in the Gulf of Oman under unclear circumstances.

In 2020, Iran witnessed a series of mysterious fires and explosions across the country, some of which occurred at sensitive military and nuclear sites.

I love seeing kids (A.K.A Zion+Wahhabi+Hindu+Ukranie) hoes crying as if it’s big deal…lol. Get out of your mother’s basement rats, not the Nazi Ukraine guy you stay and die there buddy, ty.


all the combined might of irans enemies amounts to is a little sabotage here and there and an assassination here and there how pathetic they are obviously only months away from the big defeat and in iran every province is quite capable on itself which means if you want to take down iran a sabotage here and there wont do it even syria after years of war isnt defeated so this “war between wars” agenda is a failure and it backfired big time the zionists and jews are set a century back after only one year and in fact 2019 could already have been the end of them but it would have turned into hot war and the zionists would have so much losses that they could claim a victim role globally and we dont play their games since that was exactly their game so we force them to play on our rules first entirely and that is what is happening they must be careful to not hurt any iranian anymore indeed their lives depend on this

iranians dont sit around and wait for something to happen in their favor they work hard and achieve their aims so the idea of irans enemies to be able to defeat possibly balkanize or subjugate iran was always a failure and everytime you hit us we will only be more after you than before and we will take that fire you threw at us and bath you in it because a little fire means nothing to us we welcome this war

Iran is looking more and more incompetent. It must have foreign agents running around on every street.
