Massive fire erupts in Beirut port area

Reading Time: < 1 minute

A massive fire is raging at the port of Lebanon’s capital, Beirut, a little more than a month since a huge explosion devastated the port facilities and surrounding area.

There was no immediate information about what caused Thursday’s fire, which sent up a large column of black smoke into the sky.

Some 191 people were killed and more than wounded when 2,750 tonnes of confiscated ammonium nitrate that were stored in a port warehouse for almost seven years exploded on August 4.
