A Lebanese firefighter who was one of the first on the scene of the bombing that killed former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri testified before the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Monday, describing "volcanoes of fire" that greeted rescue workers as they arrived and efforts to subdue the flames that lashed at Downtown Beirut that day.Khaled Tubaily's testimony also described scenes of devastation as far away as 4 kilometers from the site of the attack, which is likely to bolster the prosecution's claim that the bombing was an above-ground blast.The enthusiastic veteran firefighter said he rushed to the site of the explosion from his Bachoura station with two fire trucks and an ambulance, guided by the rising columns of black smoke.
