Lieutenant Colonel Rashid Mohammad Hamarain Al Darmaki, director of Al Ain Civil Defence has appealed to house-owners to implement safety practises and take adequate precaution to deal with fire-related incidents and emergencies.

A recent house-fire killed a three-year-old Emirati girl and her 30-year-old maid in Al Ain’s Suweihan area; firefighters contained the fire within 20 minutes but the room was completely damaged by the fire, the causes of which are yet unknown and being investigated. Both the maid, who rescuers could not save, and the girl, who was rushed to Tawam Hospital in a critical condition, are reported to have died through smoke inhalation.

“Our control room received a call and emergency rescue teams were sent immediately along with officials from the rapid intervention and technical sections. They reached the place within five minutes,”  Al Darmaki said.
He further recommended that owners of villas and small houses maintain manual fire extinguishing devices to counter such unfortunate events.
