Death toll from fuel depot fire in Indonesia rises to 33

The death toll from a fire, which broke out at an Indonesian fuel storage depot run by state energy firm Pertamina on March 3, has risen to 33, with nearly a dozen more in critical condition, health authorities said Friday.

Top officials called for an audit of Indonesia's energy facilities after the fire ripped through a nearby residential area, gutting houses and burning cars next to the depot in capital Jakarta.
