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.

"Because of high temperature, one of the petrochemical vessels exploded," the spokesman said in a statement.

Images shared on social media show large plumes of smoke rising up in the air near the airport. However, the Ministry of Civil Aviation said in a statement the blast would not disrupt air traffic.

The armed forces sent fire trucks and rescue teams to the scene. Firefighters have successfully put out the fire.
