Wonder if it was a chemical explosion given the red plume after the explosion.

Seems there are small explosions going off right before the big one. Reminds me of the rocket fuel plant in Utah?? along time ago.

Beirut explosion shatters windows across Lebanese capital:
https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/04/middl...ntl/index.html

Quote:
Beirut, Lebanon (CNN) A large explosion ripped through the Lebanese capital Beirut on Tuesday, injuring people and smashing windows in buildings across the city.

The source of the explosion was a major fire at a warehouse for firecrackers near the port in Beirut, the state-run National News Agency reported. Local news reported large numbers of wounded people.
Firecrackers?

Am I supposed to believe that?
