The driver made it out safely, as he instantly fled the scene the moment the truck caught fire.

The civil defense team managed to bring the fire under control. There are reports of the fire reaching a nearby apartment, and damaging electrical cables, which caused a power outage.

“At 12:45 p.m. on 11/02/2022, members of the Civil Defense extinguished a fire inside a pickup loaded with a tank containing gas, causing the fire to spread to the facades and balconies of a three-tiered building on the site, as well as a 4×4 vehicle on the Zouk Mikael highway.”

They also reported that there were no casualties and the damage was only limited to material.

The explosion affected the traffic on both lanes of the highway for a while.
