The firefighters evacuated 60 workers from the premises as the roof of the 14,000-square-metre building collapsed in the blaze.

After the workers were brought to safety, the firemen battled to save the cattle in the slaughterhouse next door.

According to reports, 57 cows were taken from the slaughterhouse to safety on land outside the facility.

The firemen managed to bring the blaze under control and also evacuated nearby warehouses due to the massive cloud of smoke that had drifted from the building.

No injuries were reported, and the cause of the blaze remains unknown so far.
