25 Jan Authorities investigate Dubai warehouse fire after thick black smoke seen by witnesses
A warehouse fire in Dubai is being investigated to identify the cause of the blaze.
This comes after reports were made by witnesses detailing thick, black smoke in the Al Quoz Industrial 1 area of the emirate.
Firefighters from Dubai Civil Defence’s Al Quoz station responded to a call at 9.12 am and reached the site within six minutes, noting that no injured civilians were present.
Additional staff from Al Barsha fire stations were sent as backup to bring the fire under control just thirty minutes later.
The authorities confirmed that the fire was “moderate”, and that cooling operations used by the firefighters continued until 10.02 am, with crews drenching the source of the fire.
Investigations into the cause of the blaze continue.
