A week after the explosion in a fuel depot in northern Cuba, the fire brigade put out the fire.

According to a tweet by the Cuban government Friday night, President Miguel Díaz-Canel was in Matanzas.

"We inform that the fire was declared extinguished at 7 a.m.," the government said.

However, there is a possibility that new sources of fire will occur.

Forensic teams and other specialists found the remains of the first four people at the scene of the fire.

After the fire, 14 people were still missing on the site.

Last Friday, during a thunderstorm, lightning exploded the fuel tank in Matanzas.

The fire spread to other parts of the facility.

A total of four of the eight tanks were damaged.

Specialists from Mexico and Venezuela traveled to help with the extinguishing work.

Around 130 people were treated in the hospital after the fire.

22 patients were still in the clinic on Friday, several of them seriously injured.

Two firefighters died fighting the fire.

The tanks contained Cuban crude oil and imported heavy fuel oil, which is primarily used to generate electricity.

The fire devoured important energy reserves of the socialist state, which is already suffering from a serious economic crisis and major problems with the energy supply.
