Workers left homeless

Two hundred workers from the Abu Dhabi Contracting Company were left homeless after a fire ripped through an accommodation centre in Al Reef, 45 kilometres away from Abu Dhabi city centre.

The centre built out of porta cabins has several blocks each consisting of around 30 rooms with as many as eight people living in each one.

As the fire occurred in day time all the workers in the block were quickly evacuated and no injuries were reported, however they all suffered the loss of personal belonging and household essential such as clothes, pillows and mattresses.
