In a startling development on the evening of October 31, the city of Donetsk, currently under occupation, witnessed a massive fire erupting from fuel tanks.

The incident was quickly reported by local media outlets, and videos of the intense flames spread rapidly across various Telegram channels.

Local residents and media sources were quick to capture the dramatic scenes as flames soared high, lighting up the night sky in Donetsk.

The video footage circulating on social media showed fuel tanks ablaze, though initial reports did not provide details on what exactly sparked the fire.

The Occupiers Speak Out

In an update provided at 20:51, TASS, a well-known propaganda outlet, stated that the fuel tanks had been hit by a barrage of missile strikes from multiple launch rocket systems.

The report also tragically noted the loss of two lives in the midst of the chaos.

As the night progressed, information remained scarce, and the cause of the fire was still under investigation.

What is clear, however, is that this incident has added yet another layer of complexity to the already tense situation in Donetsk.

As the flames eventually subsided, the full extent of the damage began to emerge, leaving many questions unanswered. What prompted the missile strikes?

Was this an isolated incident, or could it be a harbinger of further violence to come? Only time will tell as the world watches and waits.
