It's primarily learned that the waste electric equipment on the runway caught fire, releasing dense smoke over the airport.

Fire department has immediately sent five detachments and ten fire fighting trucks to the site, where burnt and burning area occupied an area of 200-300 square meters.

No injuries or deaths were reported.
