A fire that broke out in a glue warehouse in Tehran's Grand Bazaar has been contained, Iran's semi-official Fars news agency reported on Tuesday

Spokesperson of Tehran Fire Department Jalal Maleki said that the fire engulfed Seyed Vali bazaar and the firefighters are working to put out this “relatively large fire” which left those injured with severe burns of 50-70%.

“The fire is mainly in a three-story building with several shops and warehouses with an area of more than 1,000 meters, which is actually a place of storage and production of glue,” he added.

Seyed Vali is one of 121 bazaars and shopping centers in the Grand Bazaar of the capital, which is dedicated to the production and sale of shoes.

On Sunday, another huge fire broke out at a home appliances' warehouse in the northeast city of Mashhad.

The Mashhad fire department said no casualties had been reported.

In March, another large fire broke out at three warehouses of a home appliances manufacturer in the city, part of a series of explosions and fires near Iran’s military, nuclear and industrial facilities in recent years.

On January 28, a huge fire erupted at an Iranian military industry factory following a suspected drone strike in the central city of Esfahan.

Iran blamed Israel for the drone attack vowing revenge.
