    Two people were arrested after a fight broke out at Place de la Reine in Schaerbeek on Sunday evening.

    The fight involved between 35 to 50 people, said a spokesperson of the Brussels North police zone, Audrey Dereymaeker, reports Bruzz.

    Although local residents reportedly thought they heard gunshots, firearms were not used during the fight. However, firecrackers were used, according to the Brussels news outlet.
