A building materials warehouse, located on Street 30 of the Doha Industrial Area, was destroyed in a fire on Thursday morning.
No one sustained injuries even though the warehouse reportedly had some personnel working when the blaze broke out.
The fire, sighted around 8.15am by some neighbours, was brought under control in under three hours. Eyewitnesses said they could see heavy black smoke coming out of the complex before the fire was extinguished.
People in the neighbourhood told Gulf Times that they saw flames leaping from the main sliding door of the old complex, located in a narrow lane off the road from the Al Attiyah Market intersection towards Sailiyah.
