(MENAFN - Arab News) Civil defense officials in makkah averted a fire disaster in king khalid street on tuesday night after a tanker loaded with petrol crashed into another petroleum tanker in a tunnel spilling fuel on to the road and the nearby surrounding areas.

'the collision caused the fuel to reach a distance of up to 300 meters inside the tunnel which was very crowded. but we responded promptly to prevent any fire or disaster" said col. saleh al-olayani spokesperson of the civil defensein makkah.



he said three teams of the rapid action force reached the spot and blocked the tunnel and road as a precautionary measure.

'it could have been quite catastrophic as there was a large amount of spillage and once it starts to burn these sort of fires are very difficult to put out" al-olayani said.

'however our crew doused the fire with a high-pressure hose and prevented it from spreading" he said adding that 42 professional personnel participated in the operation.
