Ammon News - A man of an Arab nationality died of severe burns died Saturday when a fire engulfed a three-storey carpet store in Zarqa, according to the Public Security Directorate.

The directorate's media spokesperson said firefighters rushed to the scene and put out the flames as medics evacuated the dead body to the Zarqa Government Hospital.

He said dozens of specialized civil defence machinery and fire-fighters from Zarqa, Amman and Mafraq took part in the operation to put out the fire, which sent a thick plume of smoke hanging over the area "due to the nature of the flammable materials".

An investigation began to determine the cause of the blaze, he added.
