Below is a post from @LovinDubai regarding the fire that recently broke out this afternoon:

We are glad that the Dubai authorities were able to put out the fire within minutes.

This recent fire is another reminder for us all residents to be extra careful and a warning that we should take the time to learn how to detect fire hazards to prevent fire accidents from happening.

On another note, for us residents, it’s good that we try to have our homes insured in case of unforeseen incidents. There are a variety of insurance companies online that are offering insurance for at least AED 200+ to insure our apartments for a year.

Let us all stay safe everyone!
