(AP) Venezuelan state television says all fires have been extinguished at Venezuela's biggest oil refinery after raging for more than three days.


State television reported that the flames had been put out in the three fuel tanks that had been ablaze, and showed images of one tank smoldering. The smoke rising from the Amuay refinery had diminished markedly by dawn on Tuesday.


President Hugo Chavez said in a message on Twitter late Monday that one of the tanks had been extinguished. That came after officials said earlier in the day that the fire had spread to a third tank.


Government officials say the explosion early Saturday morning at the refinery killed at least 41 people and injured more than 150.
