Breiut Port after month another Huge Fire Explosion Disaster

Breiut, (ANN)-Lubnnan Huge fire breaks out in Beirut’s port a month after explosion disaster .

The fire explosion appears to have broken out in an area near Beirut’s port, a month after a horrific blast of nearly 3000 tonnes of ammonium nitrate flattened the Lebanese capital, killing 190 people and injuring more than 6000.

Vision posted to social media today shows what appear to be large, dark plumes of smoke billowing high into the sky over the port with flames leaping metres into the air. According 9news reported.

It was not immediately clear what caused the fire at the port, which was decimated by the explosion.

State-run National News Agency said the fire was at a warehouse where tires are placed. It added that firefighters are dealing with the blaze.

The Lebanese army said the fire is at a warehouse where oil and tires are placed in the duty free zone at the port adding that fighting the blaze is ongoing and that army helicopters are taking part in the operation according a 9News.

Panicked residents cracked open windows and called each other to warn them of the new fire.

Local TV stations said the companies that have offices near the port have asked their employees to leave the area.

Lebanese troops closed the major road that passes near the port referring traffic to other areas.

A video circulating on social media showed workers at the port running away in fear as soon as the fire broke out, a chilling reminder of last month’s blast that killed dozens of port employees and 10 fire fighters.

Beirut Governor Marwan Abboud and authorities called on people to stay away from roads leading to the port to allow fire engines to move quickly.

Police spokesman Colonel Joseph Msalam said they have no information about what is happening at the port adding that the facility is currently under control of the army.
