The fire engulfed more than 10,000 square meters, leaving a man suffering from shortness of breath due to inhaling the fire's gas emissions.
The CDD's rescue teams administered first aid to the injured and transferred him to a nearby hospital where his health condition was described as good.
The Media Department at the CDD said that in addition to a number of CDD machinery and firefighters, cadres of the Public Security Directorate (PSD), the General Directorate of Gendarmerie (GDG) and the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) helped in extinguishing the fire.
Director-General of the CDD, Maj. Gen. Mustafa Al- Bazaiha ordered to form a committee to find out the causes of the fire.
