Fire Breaks Out at Port in Beirut, Same Place of the Explosion Last Month

The same port that exploded killing 190 people in Beirut last month is now in flames. It is reportedly the second fire to break out within a week. According to the Lebanese Army, the fire broke out in a warehouse containing oil and tires. The Lebanese Army has also asked people to evacuate the vicinity of the port for their safety and for helicopters and other emergency vehicles to fly over to extinguish the flames. No deaths or injuries have been reported but many are experiencing shortness of breath due to the heavy smoke.
