    A river in Assam’s Dibrugarh has been on fire for the past two days, allegedly due to an oil pipeline blast on Sunday. The fire reportedly broke out on Burhi Dihing river, more than 600kms away from Guwahati, on Sunday due to leakage from underwater pipeline carrying crude oil.

    Acccording to reports, crude oil from Oil India Limited’s Duliajan plant came in a water pipe that was connected with the river. Efforts are currently underway to douse the fire.

    Videos doing rounds on Twitter showed bizarre footages of huge flames above a portion of the river.

    The locals accused the district administration of not acting promptly, despite complaints. They suspect that the leaked crude oil was set on fire by miscreants after the spill came in contact with the river.

    Experts are now examining the level of threat to ecosystem because of the fire.
