Two including Keralite die after building catches fire in Sharjah

Two people including a Malappuram native died in Sharjah on Friday after a building complex in Al Arouba Street caught fire. The building and the shopping center was evacuated of its residents and power was disconnected from the whole building for safety.

Electricity and gas supply was cut off to the building until 9am Saturday.

The Al Manama Super Market, which was functioning in the ground floor, has been fully destroyed.

The ground floor and first floor have been completely gutted in fire.

The building's watchman said the elevators were shut down.

The police closed down Al Arooba Street, and traffic heading towards Ajman was diverted to Corniche road.

"At 9am the next day, electricity was restored to the building while the gas was still turned off as a precaution".

Sharia Civil Defence led the operations to contain the fire and it was brought under control by early morning. The actual cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained and further investigations are on.
