Huge fire at Beirut port weeks after deadly blast

On Thursday at Beirut port a huge fire raged but there were no immediate reports of injuries, a little more than a month after a massive blast devastated the port and surrounding residential area of the Lebanese capital, said AFP correspondents.

According to the army ,it was not immediately clear what caused the blaze. A warehouse storing oil and tyres had been engulfed by the blaze.

The military tweeted ,"Operations have begun to extinguish the fire and army helicopters will take part."
Human Rights Watch researcher Aya Majzoub tweeted that insane fire causing a panic all across Beirut port.

The devastation that the explosion caused, along with indications that it was because of negligence from a number of government agencies, has left many Lebanese wondering how their country will recover.
