shar­jah — Two peo­ple re­ceived se­ri­ous burn in­juries af­ter a fire erupted in a car parked in Al Ma­jaz area on Tues­day, around noon. The cause of the fire is un­known.

The two in­jured Arab Na­tion­als — an Iraqi and a Syr­ian — were rushed to Al Qasimi Hos­pi­tal where they are re­ceiv­ing treat­ment in the in­ten­sive care unit. An of­fi­cial at the Shar­jah Civil De­fence said they re­ceived the call around 11.17am and sent the fire­fight­ers to the site, who man­aged to con­trol the fire in 10 min­utes. Their timely ef­forts pre­vented the fire from spread­ing to other cars parked in the same area. The fire gut­ted one car com­pletely and an­other one par­tially. The case was handed over to foren­sic ex­pert for fur­ther probe.
