Ajman Crown Prince and UAE Interior Minister oversaw the fire operation. The fire has reportedly broken out in tower 8 of the Tower One project.

A huge fire broke out in a residential building in Swan area in Ajman on Monday night. There were no details of any casualties.

Tenants of the tower had been evacuated and civil defence firefighters were working to extinguish the fire.

Shaikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown Prince of Ajman and Lt. General Shaikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, reached the site of the fire and oversaw the efforts by the civil defence to put out the fire, local news agency wam reported late Monday night.

The firefighting teams, headed by the Director General of Ajman Civil Defence Brigadier Saleh Al Matroushi, moved to the scene immediately and started the firefighting and evacuation operations.

Ajman Civil Defence tweeted early Tuesday morning that although the fire had been controlled, the cooling process was underway.

According to surfers comments on videos posted on our Facebook page, the fire had broken out in tower 8 of the Tower One project, but this was yet to be ascertained.

Police had cordoned off the area and blocked all roads leading to the building.
