Yerevan’s Nairit Chemical Plant Still Burning


Clouds of acrid black smoke continue to plume from Yerevan’s Nairit chemical plant.

The fire was reported at around 2 p.m. today.

Two firefighters, with respiratory problems, have been taken to hospital.

Armenia’s Ministry of Emergency Situations says that the fire is under control.

Authorities on the scene have yet to say what caused the fire at the debt-ridden Soviet-era chemical giant that now stands idle.
