Blaze hits Dubai shopping mall, no injuries reported

, March 4, 2017

A huge fire that broke out at the Lamcy Plaza shopping mall in Dubai, UAE, on Friday was contained by the Civil Defence team within two hours without any casualties, said a report.

Thick black smoke billowing out of the building could be seen from across the city but the quick response from Dubai Civil Defence and Dubai Police teams averted a disaster as they effectively controlled the raging flames in the mall building according to Gulf News.

The mall, which had only a few visitors when the fire started shortly after 11am, was immediately evacuated by the mall management.

Civil Defence officials said the fire seems to have broken out in fans on the roof of the mall.

The fire started at the rooftop of Lamcy Plaza and spread to other parts of the mall, they stated.

Firefighters battled the flames for about two hours until it was contained. It took the teams three extra hours for the cooling down operations, said the report.

A probe has been launched into the incident, it added.
