Eyewitness video footage captured the moment a wedding hall in northern Iraq was consumed by flames on Tuesday evening. The fire ripped through the packed wedding celebration in Hamdaniya, killing at least 100 people, with another 150 injured. Survivors said the fire began about an hour into the event when flares ignited a ceiling decoration as the bride and groom danced. Preliminary information indicated that the building may have been constructed with highly flammable construction materials, contributing to the fire’s spread and the building’s rapid collapse, according to state media.
