In pictures, 24 hours after the fire at the Matanzas Supertanker Base

The survival instinct shouts: “get away”, but there are those who go against that call, they have to, to the epicenter of the threat, to try to placate it. Those firefighters and rescuers are concentrated in the No. 2 Super Tanker Special Command, a rearguard that has never been more vanguard.
There are those who return to the flames every hour, the same ones who say that what happened at dawn was black, and that in an instant they only knew that “the sky had caught fire.”
Very young boys and girls and others hardened by experience, but all impressed by what they have experienced and which, they say, is unprecedented in their careers. People who doze and have lunch, recovering vitality in an hour to return to an uncertain, frightening terrain.
