pablo (59)

A massive fire broke out on Alexandria’s El Kabbari Street on Sunday after a truck loaded with 30 tons of fuel turned over.

The director of the Civil Protection Department at Alexandria’s Security Directorate, Amr Gaballah, told state-owned Ahram newspaper that as many as ten fire trucks were deployed to control the fire.

A video of the incident posted on social media shows fuel coming out of the overturned truck while Civil Protection workers gather at the scene and bystanders look on. All of a sudden, the fuel catches fire and the flames reach high up in the air and spread to nearby vehicles.
