Lightning strike sparks fire at Venezuela oil refinery

A lightning strike has caused a fire at Venezuela's El Palito refinery.

The bolt hit two storage tanks late on Wednesday, less than a month after an explosion at Venezuela's largest refinery left more than 40 people dead.

No deaths or injuries have been reported so far.
