The three workers were injured in the first incident in which a massive fire destroyed a warehouse storing paint in the Ajman Industrial Area and two 4WD vehicles.

Lieutenant Ali Hassan Al Marzouqi of Ajman Civil Defence said they were alerted about the fire around 10am. The ambulance and Civil Defence rescue units rushed the three injured workers to Khalifa Hospital and firefighters doused the fire in two hours.

The second fire occurred in a villa of a UAE national in Al Jarf area around the same time, destroying the building and the household goods. Lt Al Marzouqi confirmed that there were no casualties. The fire started in a bedroom but spread quickly to the other parts.

In the third incident, rooms in a labour accommodation facility in Ajman Industrial Area were gutted. No one was injured but electrical appliances and other contents of the rooms were destroyed.

The Civil Defence personnel were able to put out the fires in both places in a short time before they spread to the nearby buildings. All affected buildings have been handed over to the police for further investigation.
