Blasts Hit Occupied Haifa After Massive Fire at Industrial Complex

Firefighters battled to control a massive blaze after a number of buildings containing hazardous materials caught fire overnight Saturday in an industrial and logistics complex in Haifa.

Explosions were heard, apparently as the flames detonated the contents of the building. Video posted to social media showed flames engulfing the structures. It was unclear what had been stored in the buildings, with some of the explosions appearing to produce light-colored flames, Israeli media reports said. Haifa is a key location for industry, with a number of plants and processing centers linked to the oil and chemical industries.
