NEW DELHI -- Reliance Industries said it has controlled a fire that broke out earlier Thursday in a crude distillation unit at its 660,000-bpd refinery.

"It was a small fire. The crude distillation unit was under maintenance shutdown. So there won't be any impact on production," a company spokesman said by telephone.

The crude unit will likely be restarted in two days, the spokesman said. He didn't give details on the capacity of the crude unit.
