Two Asians sustained multiple injuries after they jumped off the fourth floor of an apartment to escape a fire that broke out in the kitchen. The incident happened in Ajman's Al Nuaimiyah area.

Lieutenant Colonel Raed Obaid Al Zaabi, deputy director of the Centres Department at Ajman Civil Defence, said that on receiving a report about the blaze, rescue teams - including National Ambulance - were dispatched to the location. The teams provided first aid to the injured and controlled the fire, which was apparently triggered by a cooking device, he pointed out and added the apartment was handed over to the authorities for further investigation. The injured were taken to the hospital.

Al Zaabi urged the public to follow the safety precautions of the civil defence, stressing that all incidents must be reported quickly, and evacuation carried out only through the emergency exit.
