Massive Fire Engulfs Cargo Section at Turkey’s Istanbul Airport
A Massive Firehas engulfed the cargo section of Turkey's Istanbul Airport.This is one ‘Bad A’ fire folks. Terrorism is not ruled out... or in. More to come as this story develops throughout the day. (If you can get near a TV/live video feed... check this one out!!!) ***********************
9:10am CDT:Fire is now under control. Officials are now also saying that an Electrical Short
of sorts was initial cause of fire. No pun intended but we shall see when the smoke clears out.
1:30pm EDT- Authorities have ruled out sabotage
or terrorism and say the fire was most likely started
by either a spark from a welder's torch or sparks from wiring.
They also report that 3 people were treated for smoke inhalation.
All in all-- that’s good news I would say... even though the
damage is said to be in the Millions of Dollars...
10:00pm EDT- A Kurdish militant group claimed
responsibility today for the fire, so a pro-Kurdish
news agency reported on its website.
Yet as far as I know... government officials have
refused to comment on the claim.
Well just have to wait and see how this all pans out! More to come tomorrow...
