A fire that broke out in a warehouse storing wood in Dubai's Ras Al Khor 2 has been put out. No casualties have been reported in the incident that was reported at 3.15pm.

The thick plume of smoke seen rising from the area is due to the inflammable nature of the materials, the Government of Dubai Media Office said.

According to the Dubai Civil Defence, firefighters reached the spot within six minutes after it was reported. Since the blaze was huge, civil defence personnel from three centres fought it.

The fire was brought under control by 4.30pm. The site has been handed over to the authorities concerned for further investigations.
