The Gezira Sporting Club in Cairo's Zamalek district has been temporarily closed shortly after a huge fire broke out inside a gymnastics hall on Tuesday.

Large clouds of smoke were seen rising into the sky from inside the club as dozens of firefighting vehicles rushed to the scene.

No casualties have been reported.

The Gezira Sporting Club is the largest multi-sport facility in Egypt. It was founded in 1882 and was originally called the Khedivial Sporting Club.
