A fire that broke out in an apartment building in Abu Dhabi's Al Zahiyah area on Wednesday has been extinguished.

According to an official tweet, teams from the Abu Dhabi Police and Abu Dhabi Civil Defence quickly responded to the reports of the blaze. No casualties have been reported.

Authorities have started working to find out the cause of the fire. They have asked the public to only obtain information from official sources.

Last month, Abu Dhabi Police and Abu Dhabi Civil Defence teams successfully dealt with a fire that broke out in a 30-storey building in the Al Zahiyah area. The incident resulted in minor to moderate injuries among 19 individuals.

Residents who were evacuated as a safety measure were also provided with temporary accommodation.
