What is happening in Elbasan? The fire at the former Metalurgjiku follows
Since 11:00 yesterday, the fire continues at the former Metallurgical plant in Elbasan. A fire broke out yesterday in a scrapyard, under still unclear circumstances, and the flames have not yet been extinguished.
There have been several explosions due to objects with explosive properties, such as old gas cylinders, in the landfill and this has added to the flames.
Director of civil emergencies Haki Çako was at the scene to monitor the difficult situation.
Air intervention is currently being considered.
The biggest problem is the smoke that has covered the area and the toxic waste found in it.
