AFP reported that the fire continued into the next day.
Russie said it fired “Kalibir high-precision sea-based cruise missiles” at the fuel depot, which it claimed was the largest remaining fuel base of the Ukrainian military.

One resident told AFP the explosion shattered windows in several houses.
Tamila Ivanyuk, 57, told the news agency: “We saw the explosion and the blazing fire. It was very scary.”
