A series of explosions erupted early Monday morning, at Sagami General Depot, a US army outpost in Kanagawa Prefecture, on the outskirts of Tokyo.
More than ten fire trucks were dispatched to the site of the fire, but no general evacuation of nearby areas was called.
The fire was fully extinguished after firefighters deployed at the base were joined by Japanese emergency responders, the city fire department said. Meanwhile US Army Japan voiced their appreciation for the services offered by the local fire department.
“The Army appreciates the quick reaction and support of our partners from the Sagamihara City emergency services,” the army statement read.
