The City Special Affair Authority has said; “an emergency call was received 03.36 am. Eight fire-fighting teams were quickly on the scene and worked rapidly to put out the blaze. Currently, we are working to identify the cause of the fire”. At the 08.10am, even though the fire had been extinguished, firemen were still working at the site.
