Oh yes

Firework factory ........ rubschin:
Looks more complicated than that

It's looking like an idiot welder set off a fire in a warehouse of idiotly stored fireworks that set off this idiotly stored cache of what might or may not have been fuel loaded Ammonium Nitrate that had been there 6 years since the idiotly managed Moldovan-flagged cargo ship MV Rhosus went to Beirut in distress.  Did I mention 'idiotly'
  
And that big building next to the blast centre seems to have been Lebanon's main grain elevator, just great in a country already suffering severe food deprivation
 


Somewhere else in the world someone else is making idiot decisions on welding, fireworks storage and maybe even explosives storage - maybe somewhere near you dear reader facepalm:

Those who rail against "Health and Safety" ans "Risk Assessment" should have another think.

jeez does this video capture just how horrible events like this can be

It's not graphic and the BBC say she is alive and recovering but it does stun somewhat
