Massive fire & ‘explosions’ in Brussels as several vehicles set ablaze
A number of cars parked in the Brussels municipality of Saint Gilles went ablaze late on Wednesday, with footage uploaded on social media showing large fire and sounds of explosions. The cause of the fire has not been immediately clear.
Several fire trucks have been sent to the scene to deal with the fires. The area of the incident is located just south of the center of Brussels.
Images coming from Brussels showed thick smoke rising from blazing cars.
The fire has since been successfully put out. There are no injuries and a terrorist threat has been ruled out, according to local media reports.
