Family of eight killed

An early morning fire which ripped through a villa in Abu Dhabi killed eight members of an Emirati family, in the latest in a string of fire deaths across the country this year. Another member of the family was injured and transported to hospital.

A Civil Defence spokesman said the fire had begun on the ground floor of the property in Baniyas East 7 district and swept through the two storey building before firefighters arrived to extinguish the blaze.
