A fire broke out in Ajman on 7 May, it has been revealed. 

Ajman Civil Defence was called to put out the fire, which started in a fibreglass factory in Ajman’s industrial area.

No casualties were reported.

Col Nasser Rashid Al Ziri, director of the media and public relations department of Ajman Civil Defence, said responding to the first instance call, civil defence and early intervention vehicles and ambulances rushed to the site.

Al Ziri added that fire fighters managed to control the fire and prevented it from spreading to the rest of the factory.

A rescue team evacuated people from nearby buildings to ensure workers’ safety, according to WAM.

Police blocked all roads leading to the factory, allowing fire fighters and ambulance personnel to reach the area faster, thus helping in bringing the fire under control sooner, Al Ziri said.
