14 Jun Three die in villa fire
A 45-year-old woman and her two teenage daughters from the Camaro Islands died after a fire broke out in their villa at the Al Gafiah area of Sharjah.
After receiving an emergency call Sharjah Civil Defence dispatched fire rescue units and an ambulance to the property to try to rescue the victims but all they were able to recover was three badly charred bodies.
“The fire engulfed most of the house and destroyed its contents. The mother was found dead after getting burnt from the fire, while the two daughters have died from inhaling the smoke,” said Colonel Sami Al Naqbi, director of Sharjah Civil Defence.
