Pictures: Small fire in downtown Cairo

I was walking around downtown today, late afternoon, when I suddenly found a big gathering of people, with everybody looking up at the sky. Turned out there was a small fire on the roof of a residential building on the corner of Talaat Harb street and Abd El Khaliq Tharwat street.

The fire department arrived fairly quickly, but they had some trouble getting water to the roof, so they had to wait for a ladder truck (or whatever those things are called) to come.

Once they got some water going up there the fire was extinguished pretty quickly. Nobody got hurt.
