The field commander indicated that thick smoke emanating from the fire was because the warehouse contained flammable material.

The Civil Defence  teams proceeded with extinguishing the fire, taking necessary measures to prevent it from spreading to adjacent warehouses. At 1:17 pm, the field commander confirmed that the fire was under control without any injuries or deaths, and at 1:36 pm, the teams started the cooling operations, so that the competent authorities would continue the investigations.
