A blaze erupted at the Kayalar Paint Factory in the Tuzla district of İstanbul on Tuesday morning.
The factory is located in the Tuzla Organized Industrial Site. Fire brigades from the Tuzla, Kurtköy, Pendik, Kartal, Sultanbeyli and Ümraniye districts were notified and arrived on site to extinguish the fire, while directing people near the factory away from possible danger.
