A LARGE cloud of black smoke from an industrial explosion is currently emanating from a site in San Roque near Gibraltar.
The fire and dense black clouds of potentially hazardous fumes filling the skies started at 3.10 pm.
The source of the explosion has been confirmed as a warehouse on the industrial complex owned by the company Indorama Ventures Quimica which manufactures plastics.
The flames have caused a column of black smoke that has spread across the Bay of Algeciras.
A crew from the Fire Department of the Province of Cádiz is at the scene and more firefighters from the province of Málaga are being transferred to San Roque.
