Protestors who fled to the alleys regrouped in the Pehlivan neighbourhood and set a three storey building on fire. The fire spread to the buildings nearby in a short time.

Fire brigades and police vehicles with water cannons tried to quench the fire, and later on the fire was brought under control.
