The project of cooling the Beirut port silos, which have been burning for several weeks, continues.
The first phase ended Sunday, August 28th, and was set by the Beirut Fire Brigade. Firefighters managed to reduce temperatures in the silos to below 50 degrees after it was initially around 450 degrees.
The second phase begins today, Monday, August 29th, in collaboration with the contractor responsible for clearing the site of rubble.
Authorities expect the project to be successful, although it is not the first attempt to extinguish the fire.
