Huge fire breaks out at Beirut port a month after explosion


A huge fire has broken out at the Port of Beirut, triggering panic among residents a month after a massive explosion at the site in Lebanon. It was not immediately clear what caused the fire at the facility, which was decimated by the explosion on August 4 when nearly 3,000 tons of ammonium nitrates detonated. A column of black smoke billowed from the port with orange flames seen leaping from the ground.
