Civil defense forces late Saturday extinguished a large fire at a plastics production plant in 10 Ramadan city in Sharqiya Governorate.
Security sources said nine workers were injured, the entire plant was gutted, and its contents were destroyed. Preliminary losses were estimated at millions of Egyptian pounds.
The sources said that around 50 fire engines controlled and put out the fire, and that it did not reach neighboring plants.
The fire first broke out in the plant’s store, which was situated at the third industrial zone, and then spread.
