A gas pipeline near the Russian city of Saratov is on fire, local officials said on June 15.

"According to the preliminary information, the cause was an unusual heat, which led to depressurization and combustion," Saratov Oblast Governor Roman Busargin claimed on his Telegram channel.

The pipeline has been shut off. Emergency services are working on the site and no casualties were reported.

Busargin said the incident took place near the village of Storozhevka on the outskirts of the city of Saratov, around 470 kilometers (290 miles) east of the Ukrainian border.

Local residents reported several explosions, and a powerful fire could be seen in the area.

A similar incident took place at a gas pipeline near the Russian village of Kuyeda in Perm Krai in February. In April, Ukraine's military intelligence shared footage of a burning oil pipeline in Russia's Rostov Oblast.

Ukrainian intelligence services have been linked to a number of sabotage operations and attacks on Russian territory, targeting transport, military, or energy infrastructure.
