Fireballs shot high in the sky and were visible from various points of the city. Photos and video were captured showing the dramatic scene.
The Secretary of Civil Protection announced that the fire was controlled after teams of firefighters moved to the scene to extinguish the flames.
‘The fire at the alcohol factory is under control. One person was injured and 2,000 were evacuated,’ Fausto Lugo tweeted two hours after the fire first started.
