160 get out safely

More than 160 people had to be evacuated when fire broke out in a residential building and neighbouring premises  in the Al Hamra area of Umm Al Quwain. No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. However, fire chief Colonel DR Sim Hamad Bin Hamdah said alterations made to the building without permission from the authorities made the blaze more difficult for firefighters to tackle.
