No injuries as firefighters put out Ajman market blaze
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 06 - 08 - 2020

ABU DHABI — A large fire that broke out on Wednesday evening at a market in the emirate of Ajman in the United Arab Emirates caused no injuries or deaths and had been brought under control, the head of Ajman police said.
Parts of the market which had been closed for four months due to coronavirus precautions collapsed and were completely burned, Ajman police chief said in a statement carried by state news agency WAM.
"Civil defense units and 25 police and ambulance vehicles responded immediately, reaching the incident site within three minutes and were able to isolate neighboring buildings and bring the fire under control," said Sheikh Sultan Al Nuaimi.
The police evacuated the building and an investigation has been launched to ascertain into the cause of the fire.
Firefighters from civil defense stations in Dubai, Sharjah, and Umm Al Quwain joined the Ajman force in battling the blaze.
