In a statement, civil defence authorities reported the presence of prefabricated panels that were “highly flammable and contravened safety standards” inside the event hall where the blaze took place.

“The fire caused some parts of the ceiling to fall due to the use of highly flammable, low-cost construction materials,” the statement remarked. 

“Preliminary information indicates that fireworks were used during a wedding, which triggered a fire in the hall.”

Safety standards in Iraq’s construction and transport sectors are often disregarded, and the country, whose infrastructure is in disrepair after decades of conflict, is regularly the scene of fatal fires and accidents.
