Cairo: A fuel tank truck had turned over and caught fire on a road in the Saudi port city of Jeddah, damaging six other vehicles, local media reported.

The civil defence service said it had extinguished the fire and handled a resultant fuel leak, but no casualties were caused.

Six vehicles were damaged in the incident, the civil defence added, without specifying the cause of the accident.

An online video showed flames of fire and heavy smoke billowing from the truck that was reportedly gutted as a result on a road linking Jeddah to the holy city of Medina.
