Local witnesses said the blaze along with huge explosions left residents in the region panicking. After the fire alarm was raised, seven fire engines and more than 40 fire fighters heroically rushed to the scene to extinguish the fire and prevent it from spreading to neighbouring areas. However, fire brigade team encountered difficulties in getting closer to the scene due to the huge flames and explosions from the blaze. It took until 6 am for the fire to finally be brought under control, however it did destroy a warehouse containing mosquito repellent and a truck. The investigation of the incident is still underway.
