Heavy smoke rose from a building site on one of the most populated roads, Al-Olaya Street while shrouding the famous Al-Faisaliah tower on Tuesday.

The sky above the capital, Riyadh was filled with dense black smoke covering the Al-Faisaliah tower. This made the people believe that the source was from this famous landmark, though it was actually in a building site nearby.

Riyadh Civil Defense spokesman, Major Mohammad Al Hammadi confirmed to Arab News that Al Faisaliah tower was not on fire, but instead a building site nearby. He also added that there were no injuries and were able to extinguish the fire completely.
