Fire controlled on construction site

Firefighters from Dubai’s Civil Defence were involved in a five-hour long fight to control a blaze which broke out in a multi-storey building  which is under construction in Jumeirah Village Circle.

It was the latest in a series of fires – the most recent being the fire in July which damaged the 75-storey Sulafa Tower – in the business and tourism hub of the UAE.

There were no injuries caused by the fire and it was not immediately clear whether is being developed for business or residential purposes.
