A retailer of oil and tires at Beirut port caught hearth on Thursday, a army supply stated, a bit of greater than a month after a large blast devastated the port and a surrounding residential space of the Lebanese capital.
The hearth erupted within the duty-free zone of the port, sending an enormous column of smoke above town. The army supply stated the reason for the blaze was not instantly clear.
That is the Beirut port proper now. The nightmare continues. Open all of your home windows and steer clear of them. <a href=”https://t.co/DpjSK1YHYB”>pic.twitter.com/DpjSK1YHYB</a>
Tv footage confirmed firefighters making an attempt to douse the blaze on the port, the place warehouses and concrete grain silos had been shattered by the Aug. four blast.
About 190 folks had been killed in final month’s explosion and a swath of Beirut close to the port was ruined. The blast was attributable to an enormous retailer of ammonium nitrate that had been saved on the port in poor situation for years.
