ras al khaimah — A lux­ury car caught fire “for no ap­par­ent rea­son” in Ras Al Khaimah’s Al Beeh Val­ley on Satur­day morn­ing. “The flames first started in the en­gine lo­cated at the rear part of the car, and spread to other parts. The blaze quickly en­gulfed the en­tire ve­hi­cle,” a source said.

On be­ing alerted of the fire, the cen­tral op­er­a­tions room of the RAK Po­lice im­me­di­ately dis­patched fire­fight­ers, an am­bu­lance, paramedics and res­cue teams to the site.

“Fire­fight­ers man­aged to put out the fire. No ca­su­al­ties were re­ported,” civil de­fence sources said. “They then cooled down the car, mainly the rear part, to pre­vent the fire from start­ing again.”

The case has been re­ferred to the bod­ies con­cerned to iden­tify the rea­son be­hind the blaze.
