    Firefighters arrived at the site of the inferno to combat the blaze. There is no official information at the moment as to what caused the fire to break out.

    A major fire occurred at Binhai New Area in north China's Tianjin Municipality on Sunday, local authorities stated. A storage depot for lubricants caught fire at around 09:45 GMT, causing enormous flames and thick smoke to rise over the site. However, according to media, despite the high intensity of the flames, nobody died or was injured in the incident.
