A huge fire has broken out in Beirut on the site of the massive explosion that killed nearly 200 people last month.
The fire at Beirut’s port is said to have started at a oil and tyre warehouse in the freezone.
And the smoke from the fire can be seen across Beirut.

Videos show Lebanese workers and port officials running from the tower of flames and black smoke, with people shouting ‘Go, go, go.’
Firefighters are already on the scene, with helicopters also joining in by flying buckets of water across the city to dump on the blaze.
Local media and reports have said that the army is starting to evacuate people nearby.
