According to sources, the fire blazed the factory of Doha Plastics along Street 3 for more than 10 hours before it was finally doused by the firefighters that rushed immediately to the scene because of the chemicals present in the factory. There were no official reports on the cause of the fire and if there are any injuries.

As of press time, we are still waiting for the official report from the Civil Defense.
