Fire near Dubai's Festival City now under control
Two container boats caught fire in Al Jadaf. Floating Bridge reopened
A fire that broke out on several container boats near the Festival City area of Dubai on Sunday morning has been brought under control.
The blaze is believed to have started on two vessels moored in the Al Jadar dockyard at around 9.40am
Dubai Police closed the Floating Bridge in response but this has since been reopened.
So far there have been no reports of any injuries. Reports coming in also claim the cause of the fire is a collision of two fuel carriers; however, Civil Defence has yet to confirm this.
People begun posting pictures of the blaze on social networking sites such as Twitter as plumes of smoke billowed across Festival City and beyond
