A fire has broken out at a residential tower block in the United Arab Emirates before spreading to an adjacent block. The fire broke out at a tower in Ajman emirate, which is north of Dubai, this is the third similar incident in less than a year.

Residents were evacuated, although it has been reported that several are being treated for smoke inhalation. The blaze started late on Monday evening in the twelve story tower block which houses around 3,000 apartments. Fortunately the fire was extinguished early on Tuesday morning with rescue teams being on hand while the building cooled down.

This latest fire comes after an incident broke out at the Address Hotel in central Dubai on New Year’s Eve. It is reported that the cladding used on the outside of these buildings does not meet fire regulation standards although an official investigation will be undertaken on the most recent fire when it is deemed safe.
