Residents of Paola, Fgura, Tarxien and Santa Lucija Advised to Close All Windows To Avoid Toxic Fumes Following Marsa Fire

 

Members of the Civil Protection Department are currently on site at the Menqa area where a fierce fire has broken out in the Menqa area at Marsa, at the incinerator which is also close to a wine production site.

The huge cloud of smoke is seen from various areas across the Maltese islands, with traffic reported in the area as well – since the area is also being used for diversion purposes due to the Marsa Junction Project.

 

 

 

 

 

No injuries seem to be reported as all the staff who were at the plant as the fire broke, evacuated the area immediately.

 

 

 

 

 

The cause of the fire is still unknown, but what is known so far is that the fire started at the unloading bay of the Wasteserv plant.
