Fire broke out in Dubai's Al Nahda 1 residential area on Saturday afternoon, and civil defence authorities were seen battling flames at around 3pm.

Huge clouds of black smoke were seen billowing from the fire site, which is suspected to be the ‘Caesars Restaurant building’. Police and civil defence cordoned off the area for safety purposes.

A Khaleej Times reader also shared this photo of the fire:
