A huge fire broke out at the Port of Beirut on Thursday, triggering panic among residents traumatized by last month’sthere that killed and injured thousands of people.
It was not immediately clear what caused the fire at the facility, which was decimated by the August 4 explosion when nearly 3,000 tons of ammonium nitrate detonated, triggering a shock wave explosion. More than 190 people were injured in that blast, which injured around 6,500 others and devastated entire neighborhoods in the Lebanese capital.
Dark smoke covered the capital on Thursday as army helicopters sprayed water over the orange flames leaping from the ground.
