Firefighters battling huge public market fire in Ajman, UAE
Only a day after a massive explosion devastated Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, killing more than 100 people, the United Arab Emirates’ Ajman is now dealing with this massive fire. Eyewitnesses posted footage of the alarming scale of the blaze on social media.
The cause of the fire is still not known, but the market has reportedly been closed for months due to the Covid-19 pandemic. According to the reports several workers in nearby shops tried to put out the flames with fire extinguishers, but were unable to stop the spread.
A nearby hospital was evacuated due to its proximity to the fire.
