Fire outbreak at a police complex in Egypt has injured at least 38 people, according to emergency services and local media. Firefighters managed to contain the blaze at the facility in Ismailia, and local hospitals have been placed on alert.

Egypt’s health ministry has sent 50 ambulances and two military aircraft to the building. At least 24 people are being treated for asphyxiation, along with two for burns. There are fears that the number of people injured could be higher. One Egyptian journalist reported that, because of the size of the fire, there could be deaths.

Deadly fires are not uncommon in Egypt due to fire codes rarely being enforced and slow emergency response times.

Videos posted on social media show the building covered in flames. An investigation into the cause of the fire has been ordered, according to the AFP news agency. Civil defense sources said that the fire caused parts of the headquarters of the Directorate of Security to collapse.
