Buenos Aires, Mar 23 (EFE).- State-controlled oil company YPF said an explosion at a tank farm in the western Argentine province of Mendoza injured 14 people.
Media reports, however, said 17 people were injured in Saturday's explosion.
The explosion was caused by a fire that started on Friday night at the Cerro Divisadero complex, located about 1,000 kilometers (621 miles) west of Buenos Aires.
Firefighters continued working on Saturday evening to put out the blaze and barriers were erected to keep crude from flowing into the Rio Grande.
