Abu Dhabi Civil Defence authorities have contained a fire that engulfed a vehicle earlier in the afternoon on Thursday.
The Ministry of Interior confirmed on its official social media account that a blaze had engulfed a white SUV on the Arabian Gulf Road, after the Bridges Compound.
A traffic built up in the area on both sides of the busy road persisted even at 1.45pm today, an hour after the fire broke out.
A video posted by MoI shows all that remained was a charred vehicle as Civil Defence crew contained the blaze effectively.
