Pictures shared on social media appear to show a fireball rising into the air in the Heliopolis district.

Egyptian firefighters battled flames that erupted after an explosion at a chemicals factory outside Cairo's main airport on Thursday, with a dozen people reported injured in a blast an army spokesman said was caused by high temperatures. The blast went off just before 23:00 local time on July 12.

A huge explosion has reportedly been heard in the vicinity of Cairo Airport this evening.

The Department of Civil Aviation denied that the explosion took place inside the airport, as indicated by some witnesses.
