Several units battled the huge blaze well into the night. Flames were seen raging and the area was cordoned off leading to huge traffic jam Ajman and Sharjah. Fire fighters were busy putting out the fire until late into the night.
Many tenants were forced to sleep with friends or on the streets and feared they had lost everything and some had no fire insurance cover.
Municipality teams were cleaning up the debris with bulldozers and brooms. Two cars lay damaged below the tower while tenants stood watching their gutted homes.
