The Mexican Army and local authorities have cordoned off the area where the explosion occurred.
"The fire started, apparently in a stolen fuel tank and got control before affecting the pipeline, so this did not explode ," Pemex wrote on Twitter.
Police, firefighters, Red Cross workers and volunteers are now at the scene.
Another version suggests the blast was triggered by a spark from a motorbike.
