Civil Defence teams fight to bring blaze under control
Workers were evacuated after a fire broke out at a fibreglass factory in Ajman, UAE, according to the state news agency.
Ajman Civil Defence teams on Saturday put out the blaze at the factory in Ajman’s industrial area, with no casualties reported.
Colonel Nasser Rashid Al Ziri, director of the media and public relations department of Ajman Civil Defence, said firefighters managed to control the fire and prevented it from spreading to the rest of the factory. A rescue team evacuated people from nearby buildings to ensure workers’ safety.
Police blocked all roads leading to the factory, allowing fire fighters and ambulance personnel to reach the area faster, thus helping in bringing the fire under control sooner, Al Ziri said.
