Minor fire sends cloud of smoke over Dubai Marina

Dubai: A large plume of black smoke that appeared in the morning sky on Friday over Dubai Marina looked a lot worse than it actually was, said fire officials.

A minor fire in Dubai Marina was put under control by firefighters with no injuries, Dubai Civil Defence told Gulf News.

The small fire started on Friday morning in a batch of tree waste near Al Habtoor hotel and firefighters arrived on the scene and controlled the fire in a few minutes.

“The fire was minor with no injuries. It started from a pile of tree waste,” a Dubai Civil Defence spokesperson said.
