The building is next to Regency Residence and was still going for hours after it started, according to several residents.

Around 9:30pm, the Ministry of Interior tweeted that the fire had been contained, and that there were no injuries.

Then arrived fire inspectors in their LCs and started honking to give instructions to Moroccan firefighters. A shisha party is being arranged to celebrate successful coordination and award for the best manager
