Thirteen people, including ten fire-fighters, suffered from mild suffocation in a fire that broke out on Tuesday in two under-construction buildings in Zahia area in the capital Abu Dhabi.

A joint team from the Abu Dhabi Civil Defence and Quick Intervention Unit contained the fire from spilling over to nearby residential buildings and rescued construction workers trapped in the two towers.

Lt. Colonel Mohamed Al Ansari, Director-General of Abu Dhabi Civil Defence, said the operations room received a fire report at 10:50am and immediately dispatched fire engines to the scene of the incident.

"Occupants of the neighbouring building were evacuated and taken to a temporary shelter provided by the Emirates Red Crescent,' he added. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
