Eleven people are dead and over 200 are injured after a fire swept through an oil workers residential compound in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi national oil company Saudi Aramco said the cause of the fire which broke out in a basement of the Radium residential compound in Khobar was not known.

Cars and furniture caught fire in the basement of one of the towers, heavy smoke bellowed, obstructing rescue and firefighting operations,” the Civil Defense said in a statement. The fire is now under control, it said.

Saudi Arabia is the world’s largest oil exporter with its entire output pumped by Aramco.
