Firefighters Put Out New Blaze in Beirut

BEIRUT (AFP) – Firefighters in Lebanon’s capital said Tuesday they put out a fire at a building under construction, in what was the third blaze to hit the city since a massive explosion at the port.
Footage shared on social media showed black clouds of smoke billowing off of bright red flames that climbed up the side of the curvaceous building with latticed covering.
AFP reporters at the scene saw firefighters use a crane to aim water hoses at its smoldering facade. It was not immediately clear what caused the fire.
