A massive fire that broke out on Friday morning in a parking lot at Al Qusais Industrial Area 1 has been brought under control, according to the Dubai Civil Defence.

Khaleej Times readers had earlier shared several videos of the blaze that showed huge plumes of thick, black smoke billowing into the sky.

Authorities said the fire engulfed several cars, and that the heavy smoke was due to the inflammable materials on site.
