A UAE resident has received high praise for rescuing wounded people from a fire that broke out in an Abu Dhabi building.

Iman Al Safaqsi was admitted to a hospital in Abu Dhabi after she was injured during the process.

The chairman of UAE's National Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Management Authority visited her in the hospital.

The chairman, Ali Saeed Al Neyadi, wished her "a speedy recovery and good health, praising her courageous deed in helping the injured", according to NCEMA.

Al Neyadi also expressed that such deeds of humanity and bravery are deeply rooted in the UAE community. He added that they "are manifested in its members during various situations, especially hardships".

The authority has also created a hashtag for her which reads 'UAE is proud of Iman'.

A gas cylinder blast set off a fire that damaged the facades of six buildings and a number of stores in Al Khalidiya, last month.

Two people were killed and over 100 were injured in the blast.
