Firefighter hailed a hero

An off-duty RAK Civil Defence firefighter was hailed a hero after he put out a fire that broke out in his neighbour’s house in the Al Dheit area of Ras Al Khaimah.

Using equipment stored in his own home Mustafa Al Balooshi extinguished the blaze which had started in the electrical transformer next door and prevented the flames destroying the house and spreading to others nearby.

The officer was honoured by Brigadier Mohammed Al Zaabi, director of the RAK Civil Defence who said:”Al Balooshi’s dedication and immediate reaction has helped reduce losses and contain the fire.”
