A small fire broke out at the Grand Mosque in Saudi Arabia's Mecca on Monday morning, injuring five people.

However, since the fire broke out on the roof of the mosque at a site of construction, no worshippers were injured. 

Civil Defence members, a security officer and construction workers suffered light injuries, according to Arab News

A short circuit led to the fire at around 2 am on Monday, and the blaze was brought under control soon, according to the report. 

The Saudi Gazette, however, reported that a forklift caught fire in the Masaa, which is an area where pilgrims travel seven times between the hillocks of Safaa and Marwa.

Another fire was also reported at a hotel in mecca where several pilgrims visiting the holy city during the month of Ramadan were staying. 

Saudi Arabia's Civil Defense evacuated more than 20 pilgrims after a short circuit led to a fire on the sixth floor of the hotel, Arab News said. 

This Ramadan, more than 14 million pilgrims have visited the Grand Mosque in Mecca during the first half of the holy month. 

Saudi Arabia is on alert for Isis attacks at mosques, especially Shiite places of worship, following terror attacks last month.
