Firefighters reportedly rescued as many as 22 workers from a labour camp in Al Uraibi, Ras Al Khaimah, during which no injuries were caused following an immediate evacuation.

Ras Al Khaimah Police’s central operations room dispatched firefighters and rescue teams to the scene on being alerted of the fire.

The site was cordoned off to prevent the flames from spreading to nearby camps.

Water and foam were used to put out the fire, and special machines were used to suck upk smoke.

“The blaze damaged an air conditioner and some other belongings at the camp, which was gutted,” local daily Khaleej Times reported.
