Part of Beirut silo complex collapses

STORY: There were no immediate reports of deaths or injuries.

A fire has burned at the northern part of the silos for about three weeks, giving off an orange glow visible at night from nearby neighborhoods, and Lebanese officials warned last week that part of the silos could collapse.

Residents have said the weeks-long fire at the port had re-ignited trauma of the explosion, for which no one has yet been held accountable.

Officials have said the fire burning at the silos was difficult to extinguish and had occurred naturally as a result of left-over wheat fermenting and igniting.
