A massive explosion at an illegal fireworks warehouse in the Al Quoz industrial area of Dubai early Wednesday morning has sparked a huge fire, with black smoke stretching for miles across the city.

Over 20 of the 83 buildings in the area were engulfed in flames, but the blaze has now been bought under control, police said.

Dubai police said at 4:00 pm the blaze was still burning, but they expected the fire would be fully extinguished by the end of the day.
