Flames tore through a warehouse Saturday morning in northern Venezuela owned by rubber manufacturer Goodyear, local media reports.
At about 5:30 a.m. firefighters were dispatched to a warehouse at Goodyear’s Black Eagle plant in Los Guayos, located in Carabobo state. Photographs posted to Twitter by firefighters reveal a massive, billowing fire rising high above the facility.
Goodyear announced in December 2018 that it would no longer produce tires for the market in Venezuela due to the country’s severe economic crisis.
Firefighters from Carabobo, Valencia and Guacara responded to the fire scene.
