IN PICS: Aftermath of Sharjah warehouse fire
Three warehouses and six vehicles were destroyed by a major fire in Sharjah Industrial Area 6 last week. The blaze, which broke out behind the Choueifat International School, took more than two hours to control and led to the evacuation of at least 30 families, although no injuries or fatalities were reported. “The fire had started in the warehouse of Germany Home Company dealing in sanitaryware and tiles, but soon spread to Al Rahal Auto maintenance workshop and Delta Steel Works Ltd, before spreading to a neighbouring two-storey residential building,” Al Khaleej reported.
