Nov. 17 (Bloomberg) -- CPC Corp. reported a fire at the Taiwan state-owned company’s Kaohsiung oil refinery today.

The fire at the No. 7 crude distillation unit at Kaohsiung in southern Taiwan started at about 11:10 a.m. after a pipeline leak, CPC Vice President Paul Chen said by telephone in Taipei. Fire fighters are at the scene tackling the blaze, he said.

Chen couldn’t say whether the unit, capable of processing 100,000 barrels of oil a day, had been shut down.
