A fire broke out during the late hours of last night (Friday) in a commercial center in the city of Or Yehuda. Nobody was hurt but the property sustained heavy damage. The ceiling, made of asbestos, burned and partially collapsed. A fire investigator began a preliminary investigation at the scene.

4 firefighter teams, under the command of Reshef Rafi Algabi, were assisted by two water-supply vehicles from neighboring stations and worked late into the night in order to stop the fire. Four stores suffered heavy damage. However, the main concern was from the burnt ceiling, which is made of asbestos.
