The fire began at a store called Al Dafa Novelty shops. However, since the shutter of the store was closed, residents in the area were not able to extinguish the fire immediately. Soon, the fire spread to a second store nearby, a flower shop proprietor in Bur Dubai told Khaleej Times.

The exact cause of the fire remains unknown. However, nearby shop owners said the civil defense were quick to arrive on scene and extinguish the fire.

Several devotees who went to the temple on Monday morning were asked not to enter the temple for safety reasons.
