Fire destroys three Sharjah warehouses
A fire destroyed three warehouses and a furniture store in Sharjah yesterday, the National reported.
The fire started at a warehouse owned by Zaeem Al Sham second-hand cars and spare parts and then spread to the Bab Al Hara spare-parts warehouse and a furniture store close by.
A police spokesman revealed that the fire was fueled by the oil present in the cars and rubber tyres, which caused it to escalate rapidly.
Firefighters from Dubai, Ajman and Umm Al Quwain joined the Sharjah Civil Defence to fight the fire in what turned out to be a four-hour operation.
No injuries were reported.
