Residents of the Lebanese town of Sabtiyeh in the Metn District reportedly heard a loud sound followed by plumes of smoke on Monday.
According to preliminary information, a large fire broke out at a plastic factory in the area. The fire seemingly spread to a nearby car junkyard.
The Lebanese Civil Defense has rushed to extinguish it, but has yet to release a statement.
