More than 100 people have been killed and more than 150 injured after a fire broke out at a wedding in Iraq’s northern Nineveh province. Al Jazeera reported this on Tuesday, September 26.
Local authorities believe the fire may have been caused by fireworks used during the celebration.
Fireworks are known to be a common feature of wedding celebrations in Iraq, and around 1,000 people were attending the celebration when the fire broke out.
It is believed that the flammable material used in the construction of the event hall caught fire. The Iraqi Civil Defense also reported the presence of prefabricated panels in the measures hall that are “highly flammable and contrary to safety standards.”
The fire caused parts of the ceiling to fall due to the use of flammable and cheap building materials.
