Hot iron blocks flying out caused the fire

The Fire Brigade revealed that the cause of the fire was caused by the flying of hot iron blocks during the process of cutting iron and falling on flammable materials such as perfume and alcohol, which led to the ignition of the fire in the same shop and its spread to the neighboring and opposite shops through the wood located on the top of the umbrellas outside the shop.
