QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Civil defense crews on Wednesday extinguished a fire in a local Bank of Palestine branch in Qalqiliya, witnesses said.

Assistant director of the bank branch, Abu Salah, said the fire broke-out in a stationary store and was likely caused by an electrical fault.

No injuries were reported and the main building was not affected by the blaze, he added.
