PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): A US forces’ oil reservoir was engulfed in fire on Tuesday in Pul-i-Alam, the capital of central Logar province, after a rocket hit the facility, an official said.

Governor’s spokesman Saleem Saleh told Pajhwok Afghan News the Talibaninfo-icon fired a rocket that struck a US forces’ oil reservoir in Altaimor locality at around 2:00pm.

He said efforts were underway to control the blaze on the American forces forward operation base Shank near the provincial capital, Pul-i-Alam, but it would be difficult to douse the fire soon.

The official said the entire US forces camp was engulfed in the huge fire which was so powerful and seemed beyond control.
