MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico's state-run oil company says a fire at one of its refineries has injured eight people.

Petroleos Mexicanos said in a statement that its firefighters had controlled Tuesday's blaze at the Antonio Dovali Jaime refinery in the southern state of Oaxaca. It said none of the injuries to two Pemex workers and six contractors was serious.

The company said it was investigating the cause, but that the supply of petroleum products was guaranteed.
