A huge explosion in a military-owned petrochemical plant near the Cairo International Airport took place late on Thursday due to hot weather, said Egypt's army spokesman.

Preliminary reports state that the blast, which was loud enough to be heard throughout the Egyptian capital, was related to a fuel dump, which could have happened at a jet fuel depot just outside the airport. He has not offered any additional information.

The fire caused by the explosion is reportedly under control.

Egyptian Civil Aviation Minister said the blast occurred at fuel two storage tanks outside airport perimeters.
