DUBAI, Mar 29 : Firefighters brought under control a fire that broke out at a residential tower in Ajman in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the city civil defence said on Tuesday, the latest in a series of blazes in the country's high-rise buildings.
Local media said that five people were treated on the spot for injuries from the fire which broke out late at night on Monday at the Ajman One, a residential cluster of 12 towers. Fire gutted at least two towers.
Residents of towers were evacuated and the cause of the fire was not immediately known.
"Civil defence teams have brought the residential tower fire under control and they are still at the scene conducting cooling off operations," the civil defence said in a message on its Twitter account.
The civil defence made no mention of any casualties from the blaze.
A video posted online by police showed burning debris falling from the building, as police cordoned off roads leading to the site.     ?REUTERS
