In Germany, there was a huge explosion at an oil refinery. The oil refinery is in the State of Bavaria, not far from the city of Ingolstadt.

The explosion injured at least eight people, and another 1,800 temporarily had to evacuate. No one yet knows what caused the explosion.

Difficult words: huge (very big), oil refinery (a ‘factory’ where people turn oil into petrol, wax or diesel oil), temporarily (for some time).
