Fire threatened the contents of at least three storage buildings Sunday night at a textile factory south of Tehran, Iran, news sources report. Preliminary reports indicate extensive damage.
At about 10:30 p.m., the first alarm sounded. Among the first emergency vehicles dispatched to the scene were water tankers to supply the firefighting efforts, a spokesperson for the Tehran Municipality Fire and Safety Service told the press.
It took firefighters more than five hours to bring the fire under control, the spokesperson said.
The area where the factory is located is home to many industrial concerns and warehouses. The fire and safety service advised neighboring property owners to repair their electrical systems and use ventilation to cool the premises.
