Here are some exclusive pictures taken by Jurgen Scicluna of the fire at Drop Chemicals in Mriehel. Sources who spoke to Malta News Online said that a huge chemical store lies underneath the warehouse and it will be a ‘disaster’ if this explodes.

The Civil Protection Department is also advising the general public residing in the areas closest to Mrieħel of Ħamrun, Santa Venera, Qormi, Balzan, B’Kara as well residents of Mrieħel itself to keep all windows and doors closed and avoid going outside due to the probable toxic fumes that may be emanating from Drop Chemicals factory in Mrieħel following a fire that developed there.

 

Firefighters from the Department are currently on scene to deal with the incident.
