Dubai police on Monday warned people to be “extra careful” on Twitter after fire breaks out in a building.

The police said a road in the Muraqqabat locality was closed due to the incident.

However, the local Gulf News newspaper said three residential blocs in central Dubai caught fire, leading to the stoppage of a metro line to the area.

 Dubai Civil Defence spokesman said emergency teams were deployed to control the fire.

“We got a call at 5:52pm this evening, regarding a fire in a residential building in Muraqabbat area. The emergency teams have been deployed and they are trying to control the fire. The rescue teams are also evacuating the residents,” it said.

So far, there are no reported injuries and residents of the buildings were evacuated.
