The Lebanese capital is still reeling from the huge explosion that killed nearly 200 people and injured more than 6,000 on August 4.

According to local media reports, the fire erupted near the entrance of the Beirut International Exhibition and Leisure Center, also known as BIEL, which hosts conferences and other cultural events. Broadcaster al-Jadeed said a landmark building designed by the late British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid was on fire.

"What was on fire was the insulation that separates the outside from the inside" of the building, a civil defence officer told AFP.
