A massive fire reportedly broke out in one of the industrial areas of Sharjah on Friday, according to residents and eyewitnesses.

"I was working out at the gym when I saw a lots of smoke in the sky from the window. I rushed out to see what was happening. It looks like it's coming from Sharjah since we live near the Dubai-Sharjah border," KT reader Tasmiyah Anwer said.
