Fire breaks out in Ajmam towers

A huge fire has erupted in a residential building in Ajman near Al Merqab Roundabout on Monday evening.

According to eyewitnesses, Ajman and Sharjah civil defense teams had already reached the scene to put out the fire.

No casualties have been announced yet, and authorities were evacuating the building. The fire broke out in Amman 1 Tower in Rashidiya 3 in Ajman, gutting a number of apartments. The police had closed the road around the buildings for traffic and helicopters were also deployed to monitor the fire.

Bismillah, a Pakistani tenant of Tower 8 in the complex said her three children rushed down 19 floors to safety. Tenants gathered around the complex as the buildings burned. “We are all very distraught. We have lost everything,” she said.

Several units battled the huge blaze well into the night.

Flames are seen raging while the area has been cordoned off leading to huge traffic jam Ajman and Sharjah. Fire fighters were busy putting out the fire until late into the night.
