A massive fire has broken out at Beirut port barely a month after a huge explosion rocked Lebanon.

However, the cause of the explosion is yet to be ascertained but the blaze erupted at a warehouse, which contained oil and tyres on Thursday afternoon, September 10. It is close to the epicenter of the blast that killed roughly 200 people and injured more than 6,000 others.

Firefighters and emergency crew are reportedly at the scene battling the fire.

Liz Sly, the Washington Post’s correspondent in Beirut, tweeted footage of Thursday afternoon’s blaze, writing: “Another big fire at Beirut port. Everyone’s freaking out.”

Similarly, the August 4 explosion occurred when an estimated 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate caught fire at a warehouse. The explosion destroyed so many buildings and vehicles.
