It was mentioned that the fire started small and grew bigger due to the presence of a large number of trees and green areas around it.
There are no official reports on the number of injuries or the cause of the fire until this moment. But according to witnesses of the incident, fire trucks only showed up after the building collapsed. The fire is huge and causing roadblocks in Zamalek and chaos allover the area.
