More fires reported across Egypt following last week’s fire in Attaba

Two injured in Damietta fire and a school in Sharqeya also caught fire

Following a fire in a Damietta village on Saturday, two people were taken to the hospital where they received treatment for smoke inhalation, according to the Ministry of Health.

A farm in the village caught fire and expanded to nearby buildings.

Another fire was reported at a school in Sharqeya. A room inside of the school containing student exam papers caught fire, but no injuries were reported.

Deputy education minister in Sharqeya Mohamed Al-Sheemy told state run news agency MENA that the fire did not damage any of the students’ results as the exams had already been graded.

The two fires are part of a string of other fires that have been reported over the past week in multiple locations across Egypt.

At least five were injured when a fire broke out at the Cairo Governorate headquarters in Abdeen on Thursday morning, said the Health Ministry.

Last Sunday, a major fire broke out in a building near Al-Attaba’s popular market in central Cairo, which quickly spread to other buildings and the nearby marketplace. Three people were killed and at least 90 were injured.
