shar­jah — A mas­sive fire broke out early on Wed­nes­day in Al Sa­jaa in­dus­trial area in Shar­jah. The blaze, which erupted in a wood and waste dump­ing area, spread to a diesel ware­house nearby.

No causalty was re­ported in the in­ci­dent.

Colonel Sami Al Naqbi, di­rec­tor gen­eral of the Shar­jah Civil De­fence, said that the fire erupted in the early hours. Fire­fight­ers from all fire sta­tions in the emi­rate, ad­di­tion­ally aided by the Aj­man Civil De­fence, reached the spot in five min­utes af­ter get­ting the call and worked hard to con­trol the fire from spread­ing to other diesel ware­houses in the area.

The fire started at 2.30am was put out com­pletely by 9am. Due to flammable ma­te­rial in the dump and the wind, flames fanned out quickly, but were con­trolled be­fore they could wreak more dam­age.

Af­ter cool­ing op­er­a­tions are com­pleted, the site will be handed over to the po­lice for de­ter­min­ing the cause of fire.
