A massive fire that erupted at a factory in Umm Al Quwain earlier Thursday evening has been put out without any injuries. Informed sources told Khaleej Times that the factory in emirate’s Umm Al Thaub Industrial Area “suddenly caught fire”.

“The civil defence team had evacuated the entire area, and cordoned off the site to prevent flames from spreading to nearby factories and workshops,” sources said.

“With the fire still ongoing, people are requested to stay at a safe spot and avoid crowding at the site so that defence teams could put out the blaze as soon as possible,” the official had advised. An investigation will be conducted to determine the cause of the fire.
