AMMAN — A man was killed and his brother was injured on Sunday in a car accident in Karak, 140km south of Amman,  the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Civil Defence Department (CDD) personnel administered first aid to the victims and took them to Karak Public Hospital.

Also on Sunday a 27-year-old man died in a fire caused by a gas leak in an apartment in Jabal Al Jofa. CDD firefighters put out the fire and transferred the body to Al Bashir Hospital.

CDD cadres also put out a fire that erupted in a four-dunum plot of land in Ajloun, 75km northwest of Amman.

Despite the CDD’s efforts to prevent it from spreading, the fire damaged 50 trees, Petra reported, adding that investigations regarding the cause of the incident are currently under way.
