On the morning of Monday 13 November, around 6:50 am, a large fire occurred in the Maxsul Combustíves warehouse, located on SC-480, in Chapecó, Brazil.

The fire department was called to site to aid in the putting out of the fire. The blaze was captured on video and witnesses reported several explosions during the incident.

The smoke clouds resulted in the interruption of traffic in the region, with no time of release and caused concern among local residents.

The fire is of great magnitude due to the fuel tanks that are burning which belong to MaxSul Combustíves.

However, no injuries have been reported.
