A fire broke out in three vehicles in Ras Al Khaimah on Sunday, though no casualties have been reported.

A lorry and two buses were destroyed in the fire in the Al Nakheel area of the emirate in the early hours of the morning, civil defence said.

“Firefighters managed to quickly extinguish the blaze using water and foam before it spread to a nearby labourers' accommodation and other heavy vehicles located at the site,” said Brig Mohammed Al Zaabi, director of RAK Civil Defence.

No injuries were reported and investigations into the cause of the fire are ongoing, he added.
