Firefighters battled a major blaze at a fuel storage depot in northern Jakarta on Sunday that sent clouds of black smoke into the sky.

Flames reaching more than 300ft (100m) into the air could be seen from several miles away.

It is unclear what started the fire, but explosions were heard from the tank, said a worker at the Pertamina national oil company fuel depot.

No one is believed to have been hurt in the fire.
