CAIRO: Inmates in cell block 430 at a prison in Sadat, Menoufia were evacuated after a massive fire broke out inside the prison early Sunday, Youm7 reported.
The public prosecution moved to the site to determine the cause of fire, which was likely caused by a short circuit, a security source in Menoufia security directorate told Youm7.
The prison personnel transferred the prisoners to another cell block, but failed to put out the fire using fire extinguishers. No casualties were reported.
