A driver has been arrested for starting a fire in the Dubai Outlet Mall car park on Saturday.

The Asian suspect started the fire in a car that belonged to his friend after they had an argument, a Dubai police official said on Sunday.

The fire then spread to ten other cars all parked in a row before Dubai Civil Defence teams extinguished the blaze.

The man was arrested while he was trying to flee the country.
