A major fire gutted a tyre shop in the Al Nahda area of Sharjah on Tuesday morning, causing dark fumes over the horizon.
According to eye-witness account, the fire destroyed the entire stock of tyres in the shop and the Civil Defence forces cordoned off the area to fight the fire.
The fire, which raged for a longed time, was brought under control and no casualty has been reported.
“The tyre shop is located behind a Day to Day outlet in Al Nahda. Motorists slowed to view the blaze, piling up traffic for quite some time,” said an eye-witness.
A week ago, Al Tayer Tower in Al Nahda had gone up in flames, disrupting life of 400-odd families.
