Statement Concerning Fire at the BA

On Thursday, 7 August 2014 at 7:00 am, one of the LED light bulbs in a storage room on the Second Basement Floor (B2) was damaged leading to smoke and the burning of the outer surface of a carton box filled with shredded paper. Instantly, the BA Fire Alarm and Automatic Fire-extinguishing Systems worked with high efficiency along with the safety engineers, and in a few minutes, the small fire was totally under control. It did not exceed the light bulb and the carton box, with no damages or injuries. It is worth mentioning that the BA has cutting-edge Industrial Safety Systems, and it is automatically linked to the Civil Defense Forces. A report was filled, and the Ministry of Interior issued a statement asserting the above. Work flow is going normally within the BA premises. It is opening its doors for Egyptians and tourists, and its cultural program is taking place as scheduled.
