Massive fire guts Ajman a market near Dubai and it took three hours to bring the blaze under control.
A massive fire broke out Wednesday evening at a market in Ajman, an emirate in the United Arab Emirates located about 30 miles from Dubai.
While the fire did not cause any deaths or injuries, parts of the market completely collapsed and burned to the ground, Sheikh Sultan bin Abdullah al-Nuaimi said in a statement, per Reuters.
Authorities raced to the scene, blocking off the area where an investigation will be launched, he added.
The fire broke out around 6:30 p.m. local time at the Iranian souq.
Several firefighters were dispatched to the scene and they took more than four hours to bring the blaze under control.
Workers at the neighbouring markets told reporters that flames quickly engulfed the area and sent thick plumes of black smoke into the air.
