The Emirates Identity Authority has exempted the residents of Ajman One building which gutted three days ago from paying the fees for re-issuing new ID card, said Brig. Abdullah Al Hamrani, Deputy Chief of the Ajman Police, hailing the initiative as a social support.
Brig. Al Hamrani urged the residents who lost all their documents to approach the Ajman Police for letters to concerned authorities to re-issue their documents. He said that the residents were still provided with accommodations in hotels and furnished apartments in Ajman.
Col. Nasser Al Zeri, Spokesperson of the Ajman Civil Defence, said that at least 500 flats in the building were completely gutted. These flats were in tower 6 and 8 which include 26 floors with 13 flats in each floor. He said that the facade of tower 9 was destroyed but flats were not affected there as the firefighters made great efforts to prevent the fire from spreading. Following the cooling operation, the firefighters searched each flat to ensure that there is no death. Only three cars were completely destroyed by fire, he said, urging its owners to visit traffic department to complete the insurance formalities.
He hailed the efforts of rescue teams who worked hard and became successful in controlling the fire.- afkarali@khaleejtimes.com
