CAIRO: A massive fire broke out in 6 October wholesale market in Cairo on Wednesday near the Media and Production City, destroying a baskets warehouse.
More than 10 fire trucks and ambulances were directed to the market and the fire was contained, without any injuries.
Initial investigations showed that the fire could be caused by an electric short. Witnesses told Youm7 that discarded cigarette butts may also have caused the blaze.
Two electric towers in the Media Production City were targeted by explosions early Tuesday morning, causing a cut in power to a number of nearby television channels.
