On Thursday morning, the Iranian authorities seized control of a fire that broke out in the Ramsar Hotel cinema in the city of Ramsar, which is located in the west of Mazandaran Province, on the slopes of the Alborz Mountains.

According to the Iranian Ilna news agency, Ramsar Governor Muhammad Azad announced controlling the fire, pointing out that the size of the losses at the historic Ramsar Hotel is great, and there were no casualties, and the causes of the fire are now being investigated.
