Haifa industrial complex catches fire, explosions erupt: Israeli media
Israeli media report that a large fire broke out at the Haifa industrial complex in occupied Palestine, with several explosions erupting near residential buildings.
A large fire broke out on Sunday eve at an industrial complex in Haifa, occupied Palestine, which houses hazardous materials and is located near residential buildings, the Israeli "Israel" Hayom newspaper reported Sunday morning, noting that there were no casualties.
"Firefighters from the Haifa fire station as well as teams from other brigades are working on controlling the blaze," the newspaper said. "There are reports about explosions amid the fire, and three people have been rescued after they did not wake up from the blaze."
Israeli media is yet to be able to confirm what exactly was stored in the complex's buildings, but some explosions erupted with light-colored flames, which suggests the presence of chemicals that could potentially be highly dangerous.
Israeli media reported on June 11 the mysterious outbreak of fire in 18 buses at a central station in the city of Safed in Al-Jalil, northern occupied Palestine.
Media outlets reported that firefighters put out the fire with no reported injuries, without any further detail on the incident.
Some outlets pointed out that the occupation suspected that the fire was premeditated and that the reasons were under examination, while the Safed Municipality stated that "the matter is related to a criminal act."
