Apparently a warehouse in the Najma area caught fire just before 8am. I happened to pass by the area but could not get close. The photo was captured while waiting at traffic lights near crazy signal. The civil defense had not reached there until then. By the time I was about to leave, an ambulance was approaching the scene and a few minutes later lahkwya police cars were rushing towards the area. The thick black smoke could be seen from miles away. I could not take a proper photo as my view was obstructed and I was driving. I just hope there are no casualties.
