22 workers evacuated from burning labour camp in UAE

No one was hurt in the accident.

22 workers were rescued by firefighters from burning labour camp in Ras Al Khaimah. None of the workers were hurt in the accident.   

“The blaze caused destruction of an air conditioner and some other belongings at the gutted labour camp at Al Uraibi area.”

After being alerted about the inferno, the central operations room of the RAK Police dispatched firefighters and rescue teams to the scene. On arrival, the RAK firefighters cordoned off the site to prevent the flames from spreading to nearby camps

All the 22 workers in the camp were immediately evacuated to safety, a source said.

Water and foam were used in putting out the fire which totally destroyed the air conditioner in the hall of the labour camp. Special machines were also used in sucking out the heavy smoke, sources pointed out.
