No crater can be seen on site of fire in #Brussels, explosion(s) probably the gasoline tanks of the cars exploding.— Roeland Roovers (@r0eland) July 14, 2016
Images coming from Brussels showed thick smoke rising from blazing cars.
The fire has since been successfully put out.
Local authorities said that there was criminal intent behind the car fires, but added that a terrorist threat has been ruled out. Eight cars were affected and no injuries reported.
