Baku, Azerbaijan, July 19


A huge fire erupted in a residential building in the Turkish capital of Ankara July 19, an official said as cited by Reuters.

Earlier Sky News Arabia reported that a huge blast had hit the city.

Images of a massive black cloud of smoke rising above Ankara also emerged on social media, as the city recovers from Friday’s attempted coup.

The incident reportedly happened near one of the city's universities.

The fire is now under control, Reuters cited an unnamed Turkish official as saying.
