Qatar building fire brought under control, authorities say

A fire broke out at a building under construction in Qatar on Saturday. Thick smoke could be seen billowing into the sky from a nearby World Cup fan village, reports stated.

Qatar’s Ministry of Interior said the blaze on Qetaifan Island had been brought under control in a tweet. It said no injuries were reported.

The area is home to the Qetaifan Island North Fan Village, comprising 1,800 tents containing two single beds and a nightstand.

The facility is seven kilometres from Lusail Stadium, which is hosting several games during the month-long tournament.
